Surely if there is no other argument in favour of an amended administration of our workhouses, this alone would be sufficient. Either our prisons for criminals must be made less comfortable and attractive, or our workhouses for the non-criminal poor more so.

The progress from the workhouse to the prison is a very easy and natural one. The English Poor Laws were a system of poor relief in England and Wales that developed out of the codification of late-medieval and Tudor-era laws in – The system continued until the modern of the poor in workhouses book state emerged after the Second World War.

English Poor Law legislation can be traced back as far aswhen legislation was passed to deal with the impotent poor.

The progress from the workhouse to the prison is a very easy and natural one. Abstract. Habitations of the Labourer by the English architect John Wood the Younger was the first architectural treatise and pattern book to address the dwelling of the rural labourer: the cottage.

Wood combined the order and regularity of neoclassical design with a programme of humanitarian reform, centred upon material and structural standards, within the.

Women of this class enjoyed a life full of all the things money could buy; travel, fine clothes, good food and of course, servants and staff to do chores for them.

Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world.

Evidence of Dickens's interest in the important subject of education appears in his fiction, journalism and public speeches. While he was sensitive to the various educational developments which occurred in his lifetime, he stopped short of offering practical solutions to problems, and his work only reflects a selected range of issues and institutions.
