It’s a good collection of facts about 19th century London, but needed just a little more editing to the structure and some more primary sources to be considered a really good resource.

The book itself has a good start to structure but the author’s text and the primary sources quoted and mixed together too much, making it difficult to tell which is which.

Also, the 119th century Brits were notorious for having a ton of stuff and for writing numerous books, journals, magazines and newspapers with pictures of said stuff – so why was there such a lack of pictures of primary source items?

So, good start, but by no means the last word in 19th century history.
