God Forgive Us


Albert, Master of the Thomas Street workhouse, fulfils his duties diligently.  

The Board of Guardians is full of the sons and cousins of the works bosses and they, like Albert, do not suffer those who have fallen from employment through their own machinations and greed.  

Union men and agitators are sacked and go hungry, their wives and mothers shorn and ridiculed, their daughters sold to the service of bloated gentlemen.  

The precious ratepayers pennies cannot go to the proud.
