I have to do some research of the poor in the Victorian Era. These are some things that I have to look for:
1. What kinds of programs were in existence to help the poor?
2. What was a poorhouse?
3. What was Debtor's prison?
4. Why were the poor, poor?
Are there any websites that I can rely on for the information? Thank you in advance.
