Ever wondered how the "other half" lived?

Found this in the Internet Archives.

"Campaigns of Curiosity"
Journalistic adventures of an American Girl in London
By Elizabeth L. Banks 1894

Banks was an American journalist working in London who decided to find out what life was like for the "serving class" of the Metropolis. To do so she went undercover and got herself hired out.

A very interesting look at life below the stairs in Victorian London.
