Illustrated Talks by Peter Higginbotham

After almost twenty years of giving talks on workhouses, prisons, down-and-outs, children's homes, and related subjects, I have decided to call it a day once my existing bookings (below) are completed. I'd like to give my thanks to the hundreds of groups who have welcomed me to speak at their meetings, in many cases on more than one occasion.
