Description

Shropshire – Whitchurch – Workhouses fine broadside concerning the treatment meted out by the Directors of the local workhouse to the poor requiring parish relief. It appears that they had been acting outside the law and forcing people to enter the workhouse when there was no need – for in other words the Directors were amassing their own slave labour. Printed on a single leaf of paper approx 39x24cm

Guide Price: £100.00 - £150.00
