1860-1930. Into the Modern Age.
We shall see why the dockyard triples in size, why the dung disappears, and how corsets cuts down on prostitution!
Mudlarks will entertain us, as will Sherlock Holmes with his football and three women super heroes will feature strongly.
New hospitals, hotels and theatres will appear and bring baby Peter Sellers along too.

Sadly there will still be slums and an awful murder.
