The Ghost Map
City Within a City
There were really two cities within London: London for the rich and London for the poor.
The rich lived in fine homes tended by small armies of servants. Life was safe and good.
The poor, millions of them, lived in overcrowded and unsanitary slums. For them, life was dangerous and always a struggle.
