Description

An "official beggar" has been established in the Hungarian village of Szent-Marton, in order to keep off vagrants and gypsies. At Sheffield the other day, at an inquest on the body of a crippled dwarf, who while drunk had received fatal injuries by falling down stairs, it was stated that he had been in the infirmary with broken limbs no fewer than 33 times. These and other interesting snippets are contained within the pages of this irreverent look at Victorian life from the newspapers of the day.

Author Biography

E.C. Coleman is a polar explorer with a penchant for irreverent Victorian facts, all found while researching Polar history in Victorian periodicals and newspapers. He lives in Cambridgeshire and can occasionally be found somewhere between Canada and the North Pole.
