Default Article w/ Photos & Book About "Britain's Child Slaves"

Hi Jason.

I think that little boy might be selling matchboxes. And yes, it's very Dickensian. When I see photos like this I always wonder what became of the children when they grew up? Though I suppose I should say, if they grew up.

This article about the abuse of Child Workers in Industrial Britain. It has photos.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...e-Britain.html

Here's the book title: 'Childhood And Child Labour In The British Industrial Revolution' by Professor Jane Humphries

Best regards,
Archaic

Default A few new ones from me

Was in the east end last weekend with a few friends, and as I've not posted on here for a while (been busy with Conference graphics etc), thought I'd share a few pics.

Today I have been supervising the removal of the carriageway wearing course in Back Church Lane, a few metres south of Pinchin Street.

We planed off the top 40mm of asphalt, as you can see leaving a grooved surface ready for the new asphalt to be laid back over it. That's Cable Street the other side of the railway bridge.

In these pictures below you can see what at first appears to be just a normal planed surface, we nearly missed the old manhole cover that had been tarmaced over when this carriageway was still a granite sett road. I took pictures walking towards it and you see it slowly appear.

Continued
We removed the cover and replaced it as it was fractured. This is the manhole with the frame and cover removed. It was a deep sewer and there was a rat bait shelf at the bottom, so whoever was laying the bait must have walked along the sewer as the cover was unusable.

There was also a sewer vent buried, which we removed and reset so it can now actually function as a vent again.

Hi Yen, thanks for posting those photos.

It's interesting to see the layers of history being peeled back, like the skin of an onion.

Best regards,

Sorry if these have been shown before but I didn't see them on this site anywhere. They are drawings from The Pittsburgh Dispatch November 1890

Cheers
