Not bad.

I was hoping for a bit more description about Labour and the poor. Not a bad Introduction though, a little insightful. Worth a listen.

Great introduction

This is a short intro to to Henry Mayhew's book London Labour and the London Poor. I wanted to see what David Timson sounded like and I loved it. I will no go on and purchase the full book as it seems it will be a really great audio piece of history. Great idea to have the intro before one purchases the book.
