Description

Beneath the respectable surface of Victorian England lay a criminal world. Kellow begins his survey by looking at the penal methods. He then re-creates the showmen, religious fakes, garrotters, pick-pockets, prostitutes and magsmen who thronged the murky rookeries and "lays" of the cities.
