Upstarts and Outcasts
Victoria's Not-so-proper PastBook - 2000
"Valerie Green has collected a rich variety of stories, including Arthur Bunster, the bombastic brewer; Soue Kee, the laundryman who served the fleet; Ellen Timmens, the disgruntled housemaid; Mr. Badger, the butler with bad feet; and Stella Carroll, the bawdiest of the many brothel-owners - to mention just a few of the fascinating characters of Victoria's early years."--Back cover.
