    The Blackest Streets by Sarah Wise - the title refers to Charles Booth's poverty maps and the book tells the story of Bethnal Green's Nichol, one of London's poorest areas, from its beginnings in the C17 and C18, through to the clearance of the slums and redevelopment of the area at the end of the C19. A fascinating, informative read.

    If it hasn't been mentioned Kellow Chesney's "The Victorian Underworld" is a really good study of those on the fringes of Victorian society
