Description - London's Teeming Streets, 1830-1914 by James Winter

Victorian London constructed a comprehensive circulatory system below ground but failed to transform its surface passages. The streets swarmed with a mass of obstacles to rapid motion, preventing the free-flow of traffic and resulting in unprecedented pollution. London's Teeming Streets 1830-1914 examines the reasons for this chaotic situation and looks at the various attempts to reform the capital's roads. The issue of street reform was fraught with political intrigue, and the attempt to limit activity on the King's highway raised questions about the very nature of liberal reform. James Winter reveals that many of our current problems date back to the Victorian era.
