This little book, the biography of a pauper boy taken from the Saint Pancras workhouse in London to labour as an unpaid indentured apprentice for fourteen years in the textile-industry played a remarkable role in the historic fight to end child labour and for the implementation of the Ten Hours Bill. Its publication also had an important impact on Victorian literature, for it provided the inspiration which led the novelist, Frances Trollope to write Michael Armstrong - the Factory Boy, and Charles Dickens to author one of his best known novels, namely Oliver Twist. An incredible and thought-provoking read from start to finish, providing an insight into the life of all too-many children during the years of the Industrial Revolution. Published in support of the Working Class Movement Library in Manchester's twin city - Salford.
