Insanitary city: Victorian Edinburgh

May 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

BEGINS the event blurb: “Don’t miss out on securing your ticket to Insanitary City with Richard Rodger, Professor of Economic and Social History at the University of Edinburgh, and co-author of ‘Insanitary City: Henry Littlejohn and the Condition of Edinburgh’.

“Victorian Edinburgh was a melting pot of industry and people. The industrial revolution created new work, attracting migrants searching for a better life. The reality, however, was often different – with many families having no choice but to live in the filthy, disease-ridden, overcrowded slums of the Old Town.”
