The Morning Chronicle presented the state of the working classes of Britain before the public with clarity, insight and honesty. Consisting mainly of verbatim statements from the people themselves, it was a medium through which the previously inarticulate masses were able to speak with one firm voice.

First published in 1983, this book collates the letters from correspondents based in Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire. The letters improve our knowledge of working-class life in nineteenth century England and Wales and provide a unique insight into the impact of industrialization.

This book will be of interest to those studying the history of the working class, labour and poverty.
