Publisher Description

There has never been a city with more prisons than London, and probably none whose courts have sent so many to public torment and execution. Prisons and Punishments of London
is the first full survey of London's many prisons through the ages -- from the Tower to Pentonville -- and of the punishments meted out to felons.
With a cast of characters ranging from highwayman Dick Turpin to reformer Elizabeth Fry, and packed with eyewitness accounts, anecdotes, little-known facts and numerous illustrations, Prisons and Punishments of London
touches on everything associated with prison life, from the inmates to the rough justice of the day.
