In addition to the digital documents, London Low Life contains a wealth of secondary resources, including a chronology, interactive maps, essays, online galleries and links to other useful websites.

This image of the viewing of Harriet Lane’s body is one of many in a Police News Edition pamphlet on the Whitechapel tragedy in 1874.
