The dark truth behind the glittering displays of merchandise in the Great Exhibition's Crystal Palace was how those products - the glass, cutlery, lace, candles and cotton - were made by children of all ages labouring in the mines and factories of Georgian and Victorian Britain. This study looks at the various industries and occupations that used child labour, including agriculture and the infamous chimney sweeping, and describes the painfully slow struggle to improve working conditions and educational opportunities for the children.
