What Was London like in the 1880s?

Answer

In the 1880s, most working class people stayed in two roomed houses and more than half the population never left the city. The society was oligarchic and only a small number of people were allowed to vote and lower class people were mostly shunned by society. 80% of London’s population was working class and In order to be considered middle class you had to have at least one servant.

In the 80s, London's population began to rise for the first time in the century after reaching its lowest point in 1983. Money began to flow in the city as the banking and financial service industries took over the role previously taken by the docks. On the down side, hostility between national government and the Greater London Council (GLC) led to the abolition of the GLC in 1986 and the IRA resumed its bombing campaign.
