1890s Slang

Setting: London, England; 1890s. If it matters... probably post-'96.
I'm looking for slang terms. I've googled "victorian slang," "victorian idioms," and "1890s slang," but I haven't really found what I want as of yet. I've gotten some lists of words that upper class and (presumably very) lower class people would have been familiar with, but I'm more interested in terms that the average, middle class person would have used. I don't need anything specific (i.e. crime-related slang), just some things I could throw in here and there, in dialogue or in the narritive itself, as it's in first person. Anyone able to help?
