After the Public Health Acts of 1872 and 1875, British local authorities had statutory obligations to carry out sanitatary improvements. This study explores public health strategy and central-local government relations during the mid 19th century, taking the small market town of Uppingham in the East Midland as a micro-historical case study. Despite legal changes enforcing sanitary reform, the town and its boarding school were hit three times by typhoid in 1875-6. No jacket.
