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.
