Excerpt from Poverty Its Genesis and Exodus; An Inquiry Into Causes and the Method of Their Removal

The manifestations of poverty are numerous and varied, but Mr. Harrison gives prominence to one which should be peculiarly repugnant to English susceptibilities: the repulsive homes - if homes they can be called - of large masses of the people. The Royal Commission appointed in 1884 to inquire into the Housing of the Working Classes reported that the evils of overcrowding, especially in London, were a public scandal, and were becoming in certain locali ties more serious than they ever were 2 Six, nine, and even twelve persons of both sexes inhabiting one small room; seven people in an underground kitchen, six in a washhouse, thirty-eight in a small house; two families living together; husband, wife, four children, and a female lodger and baby occupying a single room; more than sixty persons in a house of nine rooms, in none of which was more than a single bed; people sleeping on shelves as on ship-board; children sleeping under their parents' beds - such are some few of the facts which the Commission brought to light. 3 Their appalling significance, especially as regards their in?uence upon the physical and moral condition of the people, is too patent to call for comment.
