My story is set in Victorian London, but I'm having some major problems.
- One of the characters gets trasported off to Van Dieman's Land, which I think is Tasmania (I can't find anything online--I'm Google'd and Wikipedia'd ad nauseum). Does anyone know which year they stopped transporting criminals to New South Wales, Tasmania, Australia, etc?
- I need a book, anything about Seven Dials (I've read a book called Slammerkin set there, but it's like trying to find information on Five Points before Gangs of New York came out). Any sugguestions?
- Was there public transportation?
