Summary
For two centuries, the shadow of the workhouse hung over Britain. The recourse of only the most desperate, dark and terrible tales of malnutrition, misery, mistreatment and murder ran like wildfire through the poorer classes, who lived in terror of being forced inside the institution's towering walls. This book contains 365 incredible tales of fires, drownings, tales of abuse, assault, bodysnatching, poisonings, post mortems and murder. Accompanied by 70 illustrations, this book will thrill, fascinate, sadden and unnerve in equal measure
