Prisons and Prisoners In Victorian Britain provides an illustrated insight into the Victorian prison system and the experiences of those within it—on both sides of the bars. Featuring stories of crime and misdeeds, this fascinating book includes chapters on a typical day inside a Victorian prison—food, divine service, exercise, and medical provision; the punishments inflicted on convicts—such as hard labor, flogging, the treadwheel, and shot drill; and an overview of the ultimate penalty paid by prisoners—execution. Richly illustrated with a series of photographs, engravings, documents, and letters, this volume is sure to appeal to all those interested in crime and social history in Victorian Britain.
