By Susan D. Pennybacker
Pennybacker's social historical past checks the imaginative and prescient of London Progressivism opposed to its practitioners' accomplishments. She argues that the ancient reminiscence of the hopes encouraged through LCC success and the disillusions spawned via failure, are effective forces in ultra-modern deeply ambivalent responses to metropolitan politics in London. The `new women', bohemian London, scandal within the development undefined, midwifery, accommodation homes, kid's provision and the tune corridor have been all provocative concerns in LCC paintings. Their tale richly conjures up existence within the turn-of-the-century city and illustrates the complexities of `municipal socialism'.
