Description

This absorbing collection of some of the foulest deeds from Rotherham's past promises to interest anyone who is unaware of this forgotten part of the town's character. With stories ranging from child murders to brutal stabbings, the misdemeanours that are revealed promise to shock and fascinate in equal measure. While some of these felonies are unjustifiable, much of Rotherham's crime was the result of the desperate poverty that many of the area's inhabitants experienced. Illustrated with both rare images and archive reports, this volume shows just how difficult life in Victorian England was for those who had nowhere else to turn. Written by local author Margaret Drinkall, a true crime expert, this book tackles a subject that many would prefer to ignore, but which remains an important part of Rotherham's history.show more
