Joseph Ashby of Tysoe, the agricultural
trade unionist, travelled round Warwickshire in the 1890s observing ‘the real
life lived by the labouring poor in the villages of Warwickshire’. He published
a delightful series of articles in the Warwick Advertiser; this book contains
extracts from his articles illustrated by old photographs. The burning issues
of the day included hunting, gipsies and affordable housing. Read this book to
discover the secrets hidden behind the cottage doors of Victorian England.
