Description

The forgotten story of how ordinary families managed financially in the Victorian era – and struggled to survive despite increasing national prosperity. The Victorian era saw remarkable economic growth and a rise in real wages. But not everyone shared in the nation’s prosperity. Many families continued to live in grinding poverty with women and children usually faring worst. In this incisive account, Emma Griffin unlocks the homes of Victorian England to examine the lives – and finances – of the people who lived there.
