Description

This wonderfully evocative read explores every aspect of life - and diet - in the workhouse. Including a complete reprint of the 1901 Manual of Workhouse Cookery, and with more than 100 photographs, recipes, plans and dietary tables, it is a shocking, surprising and utterly unique guide to one of the most notorious establishments of the past. The dark history of the institution - scandals, riots and, on occasion, the near starvation of the inmates - is explored in depth.
