Course Description
From the splendor of Buckingham Palace and the neo-Gothic Houses of Parliament to the rookeries of St. Giles and slums of the East End, London during the Victorian era was a city of contrasts. This class will explore the growing metropolis through such topics as poverty and crime, health and sanitation, the coming of railways, suburban expansion, imperial architecture, opportunities for women and immigrants, and popular amusements, including pubs and music halls.
