Classic Slum by Robert Roberts

Book Description

This is a study which combines personal reminiscences with careful historical research, the myth of the 'good old days' is summarily dispensed with. Robert Roberts describes the period of his childhood, when the main affect of poverty in Edwardian Salford was degradation, and despite great resources of human courage, few could escape such a prison.
