David Timson introduces London Labour and the London Poor and its author Henry Mayhew, who in 1841 founded the satirical magazine Punch before his social conscience moved him to expose in his remarkable book the terrible poverty in London - then the richest city in the world.

This is a short intro to to Henry Mayhew's book London Labour and the London Poor. I wanted to see what David Timson sounded like and I loved it. I will no go on and purchase the full book as it seems it will be a really great audio piece of history. Great idea to have the intro before one purchases the book.
