NPR: 'Dirty Old London': A History Of The Victorians' Infamous Filth

An NPR article about the new book Dirty Old London: A History of the Victorians' Infamous Filth, with some excerpts from this book about London's horse-drawn transportation infrastructure, cesspools, the appearance of water closets, etc. Looking forward to reading this book to understand how people lived day-to-day and the changes that were introduced to address the problems associated with the filth, smoke, smell, etc. The link to the article is here.
