Nasaw's Children of the City is a wonderful glimpse into the lives of children at the turn of the century. It is a huge help in understanding why the newsies did what they did. 0. Report. com User, June 7, 1998. This book was extreamly good and gave a GREAT picture on what children's lives were like up to the 1920's, and the pictures and facts were INCREDABLE!!! A must read!!!

The turn of the twentieth century was a time of explosive growth for American cities, a time of nascent hopes and apparently limitless possibilities. In Children of the City, David Nasaw re-creates this period in our social history from the vantage point of the children who grew up then. Drawing on hundreds of memoirs, autobiographies, oral histories and unpublished—and until now unexamined—primary source materials from cities across the country, he provides us with a warm and eloquent portrait of these children, their families, their daily lives, their fears, and their dreams.Illustrated with 68 photographs from the period, many never before published, Children of the City offers a vibrant portrait of a time when our cities and our grandparents were young.
Comments to eBook Children of the City: At Work and at Play
Sagda
Excellent account of late 19th century life of children. Newsies is my favorite musical and I wanted to know the real story behind it.

There is never a dull moment with this book. The story of the Children of the City should clearly demonstrate to readers why this generation and their children had such wildly different values in regards to working, earning money, and attitudes towards authority.

great book

Well researched and written. The book resonated with me as I'm old enough to remember doing in the 1940's much of what the street urchins did 100 years ago. Loved the list of the rich and famous who shared similar stories and references to their biographies which sound like good reading as well.

Lots of surprises as to who the "Newsies" really were and what kind of life the children of that era experienced.
It is a very good book about the past, I will not ruin it but I will recommend this book to friends or family.
