Population 1800: 1 million

Quote from Dickens’ Biographer
“If a late twentieth-century person were suddenly to find himself in a tavern or house of the period, he would literally be sick – sick with the smells, sick with the food, sick with the atmosphere around him.”
London/Early 19th Century
Upper and middle class homes next to areas of extreme poverty and filth
In the streets, poor and rich together
Rags and riches
Street sweepers meagerly attempt
coal smoke- soot settled everywhere
Not a priority
Gas lamps outside
Only primary streets
Dickens describes a London rain storm”
“In the country, the rain would have developed a thousand fresh scents, and every drop would have had its bright association with some beautiful form of growth or life. In the city, it developed only foul stale smells, and was a sickly lukewarm, dirt-stained, wretched addition to the gutters.
