Musings on Victorian influences in modern culture via fashion, music, film, subcultures and whatnot
How fascinating! I always find things like this so interesting! I remember reading an annotated kids version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame when I was younger which discussed Parisian begging tricks such as pretending to be lame or blind. More frightening are the rumours of people maiming themselves or family to better beg.
I love love love Horrible Histories, Matthew Baynton is really funny! That was a particualry interesting episode, the soap trick is genius!
