Excerpt from Life and Labour of the People in London I have at times doubted whether the prolongation of this work has had any other basis than an inability on my part to come to a conclusion. I have asked myself whether I should indeed have anything more to tell my readers than had been already told in previous volumes. My first attempt was to enumerate the mass of the people of London in classes according to degrees of poverty or comfort and to indicate the conditions of life in each class. In connection with this attempt I mapped out the streets in colours and endeavoured to show by sample descriptions the kind of persons dwelling therein, their habits and the manner of their lives. A second and similar classification, the results of which were published at the same time, was based on what I could learn of the children in elementary schools; and in connection with this the educational opportunities offered to these and other children in London were described.
