Once upon a time....

1860 (to be precise)

There once lived young boy called Harry, Harry lived with his family in a little hamlet called Crouch End, in London.
Harry's family were very poor and after a particularly hard winter, were quite desperate.
Fortunately for them there were no laws that governed the use of small children working.
So the family sent young harry out into the cold so he could secure himself a nice little earner.
Whilst his father spent the the last of his pennies on ale at the Firkin pub on the corner, and so Harry set off.
He walked all through night the cobbles sparkling with frost under his feat, the gas lights
spluttering and hissing and the sound of London by night echoing through near empty streets.

Get the picture? Good.
