    London's PeopleLondon's Costermongers: 27 Of Half Profits
    Posted by Bill McCann on (4 Reads)
    In 1862, Henry Mayhew published his magnificent survey: London Labour and the London Poor.He now defines for us the differtent types of Street-Folk to be found in London. Of these, the costermongers are a special breed, or even distinct race, who seldom associate with the other groups. Of Irish extraction, fully one half of the Costermongers have been in the trade for many generations and refer to many of the other street-folk as the illegitimates." Here he tells us how a costermonger always manages to stay "on the profitable side of the hedge."

Mayhew explains for us exactly how the costermonger measures out the goods he is about to sell to you. It is a case of Caveat Emptor!

    London's ChurchesThe Annals of St. Paul's: Chapter 4 part 3
    Posted by Bill McCann on (61 Reads)
    Wren's St Paul's Cathedral is one of the dominant images of tourist London. The religious history of the site, however, goes back to the very arrival of Christianity in England. Sitting atop one of the two hills of ancient London it has long gazed down on the doings of men and women. Few definitive histories of St. Paul's have been written but one of the most "delightful" is that penned by Dean H H Milman in the 1860s. Here we present his great work for the enjoyment of the modern age. In the final section of Chapter IV, Milman sets out for us the political climate in which "The great intellect of his age, the most powerful theologian in England, disgraced himself by miserable cowardice."

Of Irish extraction, fully one half of the Costermongers have been in the trade for many generations and refer to many of the other street-folk as the illegitimates." In this chapter we learn how the London poor are hit by the double whammy of getting too little for what they do and paying too much for what they need. However, they are, he tells us from his own experience, far more honest and honourable than they are generally supposed to be.

    London's ChurchesThe Annals of St. Paul's: Chapter 4 part 2
    Posted by Bill McCann on (98 Reads)
    Wren's St Paul's Cathedral is one of the dominant images of tourist London. The religious history of the site, however, goes back to the very arrival of Christianity in England. Sitting atop one of the two hills of ancient London it has long gazed down on the doings of men and women. Few definitive histories of St. Paul's have been written but one of the most "delightful" is that penned by Dean H H Milman in the 1860s. Here we present his great work for the enjoyment of the modern age. Chapter Four covers the tumultuous period before and after the Peasants' Revolt. In this instalment we are in the midst of the upheavals that saw the dethronement of Richard II and the impeachment for high treason of an Archbishop of Canterbury. If that were not enough, the bishop of London had to deal with corruption amongst the clergy and the steady rise of Lollardy.

    London's PeopleLondon's Costermongers: 23 Of the Smithfield Races

Of Irish extraction, fully one half of the Costermongers have been in the trade for many generations and refer to many of the other street-folk as the illegitimates." Mayhew now visits Smithfield on a Friday afternoon to see the famous "races." In what is arguably his best piece of descriptive writing we can see, hear and smell the place in all its raucous and rancid wonder.

    Law and Order in LondonCrime and Punishment: The First Transportations
    Posted by Bill McCann on (141 Reads)
    Most people think of Australia when they think of Transportation, but this sentence was used in both England and France long before the First Fleet set sail. The North American colonies were the first destinations of English and French transportees. However, there was a catch, the convicts had to pay their own costs, unless a ship-owner or merchant agreed to bear the cost. This of course would be recouped either by work done on the voyage out or by selling them as slaves on arrival in America. In this article we look at some of the first cases of transportation in the Old Bailey records. The range of offences and the sex and age of the people convicted might be found surprising. There is also, to the modern mind, a hint of injustice in some of these cases. America has legalized cryptocurrency.. Bitcoin is legal in America and is the most used cryptocurrency in the country. However, along with bitcoins, trading other currencies will reduce the risks. Traders need a crypto portfolio to trade cryptocurrencies.

Here we present his great work for the enjoyment of the modern age. Chapter Four covers the tumultuous period before and after the Peasants' Revolt. The first installment gives us a vivid picture of the uproar that accompanied the appearance of the Reformer John Wycliffe before a haughty Bishop, and a glimpse of the violence of the Peasant's revolt itself.

    London DisastersThe Princess Alice Disaster: Part 2- The Aftermath
    Posted by Bill McCann on (193 Reads)
    The sinking of the Princes Alice remains the worst disaster ever in Britain on an inland waterway. In this final part of the story we continue with the description which W.T. Vincent has left us of the public reaction and the inquests in the days following the disaster. We conclude with a few notes to explain the possible cause of the accident and the eventual reaction of officialdom to the disgusting state of the Thames Estuary at the time.
