Description

The Strand is one of London’s most iconic streets – today the bustling and thriving home of West End theatres and the luxurious Savoy hotel; in the Victorian era the Strand was a much more seedy and destitute part of the city. Barry Anthony here explores the criminal and socially subversive behaviour which abounded in and around the Victorian Strand. He introduces us to a vast range of personalities – from prostitutes confidence tricksters vagrants and cadgers to the actors comedians and music hall stars who trod the boards of the Strand’s early theatres.
