Most interesting period piece

(5 stars)

Of great interest to researchers, historians, plain old autodidacts and curiosity seekers. and I daresay still to workers. Thank you enko, you have a fine voice which I found easy on the ears. Chapters on sabotage for silk workers will bring to mind the poor dead of the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire, locked in their deathtrap in the fire that heartlessly started at quitting time but before the workers were let outside. I read the librivox eponymously titled book about it recently and remember sabotage had been an issue in the labor dispute that preceded the fire. Also can recommend more info on adulteration of food and liquor in chs. 18 and 19 of p.t.barnum's immensely entertaining HUMBUGS OF THE WORLD.
