The Lord Mayor of London

(1862)
Or, City Life in the Last Century
A novel by

 
The Lord Mayor of London is set in the reign of George III, but Ainsworth's worthy Sir Gresham Lorimer embodies all the Victorian qualities of the industrious, honest citizen, risen from humble origins to the highest civic position. His wife adopts the exaggerated dress of the fashionable set with a 'lofty head-dress, which rose full three feet above her brows, and might have overbalanced a less substantially-built frame'; their children are introduced at court and members of the royal family appear as characters in the novel. Descriptions of society balls and city pageants alternate with accounts of low life and the activities of the money lenders of Moorfields.
