This is a very interesting and informative book. It gives a good idea of what life in the workhouse was like. The intentions were good, it's a shame it didn't work out better.

I was interested in this book because I recently met a 98 year old man who had been brought up in a workhouse. He was the child of an unwed mother and she had an offer of marriage however on the condition the child didn't come with her. She probably did'nt have a lot of choice in those days (1918)
Interested to read more having read "shadows of the work house"
