Evening Talk

Museum Evening Talk

London’s Rubbish – Two Centuries of Dirt, Dust & Disease in the Metropolis

with author Peter Hounsell

Tuesday 20 May 7.30pm in the Museum Café. Tickets £6.

The skyline of Victorian London was dominated by sinister mounds of rubbish, graphically described in Dickens’ novel Our Mutual Friend. Surprisingly, these dust mounds were where hundreds of so called ‘running’ or ‘flying’ dustmen made a meagre living. Working in the open air in all weathers, amid the dust and smell, they separated out the refuse, selling much of it on, in an early form of recycling. They turned a profit from mere rubbish: the ‘Alchemy of Dust’. In time the fear of cholera and other epidemic diseases resulted in public health legislation that banished the dust mounds, and 150 years later Londoners do their own recycling. In this fascinating talk, Peter Hounsell explores the major changes in the management of London’s rubbish over the last two centuries.

Please book your seats in advance via contact@wandsworthmuseum.co.uk or by calling 020 8870 6060.
