Poverty, Work and Life in the Victorian Docks is a session to develop an understanding of the docks as an important centre for Victorian trade and industry, and find out about the working and living conditions of dockers' families. Original tools, artefacts, commodities and historical photographs provide topics for lively discussion, while role-play enables exploration of some of the issues. In the second part of the session, meet Maeve Dawson in 19th-century Sailortown to hear stories of travel, work and life in the colourful and diverse Victorian East End.
