Helping the Poor: Friendly Visiting, Dole Charities and Dole Queues
"In the nineteenth century charities competed against each other for the support of the public: whichever ones found the most effective ways to help the needy would flourish. Helping the Poor compares the Charity Organisation Society, the most famous of all visiting charities, with the Lord Mayor's Mansion House Fund of 1886 for the relief of the unemployed."--Back cover.
