Owler was becoming darker and darker in complexion, through inhaling
daily the pestiferous atmosphere...'
this broadsheet, the plight of an Englishwoman whose home was infiltrated
by sewer gases is reported, including letters written about the
incident and statements to court judges from George Owler, the woman's
husband. There is also a map of the property, off Carmichael St.
and its proximity to the main sewer drain.
Horrible! Horrible!' is the title of this article, the purpose of
which is to publicise the wrong-doings of the Sanitary Inspector
who is claimed to have slowly and vindictively poisoned the woman
by connecting a trap from her bedroom to the main sewer. Cholera
was a major killer during this period, and many people were justifiably
scared of the unhealthy living conditions, and demanded reform.
