Dickens’ London Lives

The Daily Mail brings this fascinating glimpse of a rare collection of Victorian-era photographs from 1877, taken near the dawn of photography, and affords us a vivid and intimate, if stark, look at the London of Charles Dickens, that great city that so many have grown to know and love through Dickens’ masterpieces and other literature. Photography was invented around the time of the American Civil War (1861-1865), and these early pictures give us a window into the gritty real life that Dickens observed strolling down the cobble stone streets around Britain’s capital and so memorably evoked in his classic novels.
