Who were the people that provided entertainment for all? Where did they come from? Why were they there at Cremorne? The mystery lies beyond the tent where the magic of the circus comes alive. 
     

    Sing Sweet Nightingale

    Set up in 1860 in St. Thomas’ Hospital, the Florence Nightingale school of Nursing was founded shortly after the Crimean War due greatly to Florence Nightingale herself and her efforts during the conflict. Graduates were called Nightingales and studied for a year, as well as lived within the training schools facilities.

    Deep In the Underbelly

    Scoundrels, thugs, thieves, and so much more, the underbelly of London is hiding away the worst of the scum that you can find within the limits. With gangs on the loose, such as The Bricky Colts, and the East End a breeding ground for not only members but leaders as well, it feels like the only path to take for those who want to survive the harsh state of the city. Opium is in high demand, weapons are being traded and sold, and information is priceless and necessary to stay on top of the game and ahead of the curve. There’s nothing quite like the thrill and adrenaline that comes with the threats and the power but is that enough to keep the scales tipped in one's favor? It’s smart to keep a gun close and friends closer, but it’s even smarter to be wary when in the shadows of London.
