How strange...the image of the poor, dirty and crowded children came onto my screen directly above the spacious, sleek and very expensive Viennese furniture. The two photos were presumably taken only 15-20 years apart.

We talk about two societies now, the rich and the poor. But I am not sure it is worse now than in Edwardian times.
