'The Nemesis of Neglect', 1888. Crime, armed with a viciously sharp knife, stalks the streets of the capital. This was the day of Jack the Ripper, and fear abounded in the slums. In Punch's view, it was precisely because the slums had for so long been utterly neglected and its people so deprived that evil and depravity was able there to find a home. From Punch, or the London Charivari, September 29, 1888.
