Abstract

Multimedia CD ROM examining life in Victorian Edinburgh and Glasgow. An analysis of life for working-class and middle-class families in Edinburgh and Glasgow within the period 1850-1900. This program supports investigations into urban life with maps for selected middle and working class areas of each city linking to further information including profiles of heads of family, photographs and 1851 and 1891 census information. Contained within a database, this census information can be searched to investigate a range of themes such as employment and migration. The following five figures come from this project.
