A Lady Cleans Her Doorstep

In Wake Street, just off Lambeth Walk. Some of the householders wash not only their front doorsteps, but a large slice of the pavement, too. It's a regular North Country custom, but among London smoke and dirt it seems a strangely noble act. Taken from 'Life in the Lambeth Walk' Article.
