George Orwell and London Bridge

George Orwell lived ‘as a tramp in a doss house’ on Tooley Street by London Bridge Station for three weeks in 1931. He wrote up his experiences in Down and Out in Paris and London (1933), his autobiographical investigation into living in poverty in which he tried to understand what it meant to be poor or destitute.
