Ewald Mengel

Between 1850 an 1870, Charles Dickens published a number of items concerning the railway in his weekly journals Household Words and All The Year Round.< These items - reports, essays, sketches, reportages, anecdotes, satires and tales - are written in a lively and entertaining style and provide deep insight not only into the functioning of the railway system but also into Victorian society itself.
Contents: Introduction - Railway Poetry - Railway History - Railway Statistics - Railway Organization and Management - Critical Views - Railway Satires.
