Life for the Poor in Victorian Times

Logan Huey

The picture shows adults and their kids in poor houses. This was the living conditions of the poor in Victorian Times, things did not look very good for them. The population had a huge increase so they made poorhouses to house the homeless. Children were expected to work in order to help support their families. The water they had to drink was dirty and unsanitary. There was also an increase in crime with children. Many children was resort to stealing in order to survive. The rich people of the society acted like they did not care about the poor and the way they were living.
