General Information...


On the Cover

The pretty girl selling song sheets belongs on page 19, likewise, the headlines from the broadside ballad sheets
mentioned in Andy Aliffe's article. The pub scene relates to the first of our listing of the pubs and beerhouses in
Whitechapel in 1888. The picture comes from an 1879 edition of The Graphic and was 'drawn from life'.
