Charles Booth on suburbs as places of leisure – and consumption

February 14, 2008

Just noted in ‘Charles Booth’s London’: “Wherever a man may go to find his work, it is near home that he will seek his pleasure, and his wife will find her shopping… with brilliant shops, streets full of people, churches, and chapels certainly, perhaps a Town Hall, and probably a theatre” (quoted in Fried and Elman, 1969, page 330). (See more on Charles Booth here).
