About the Book

In The Not-So-Very-Nice Goings-On at Victoria Lodge, Philip Ardagh uncovered skulduggery of the murkiest kind lurking within the seemingly innocent illustrations of The Girls' Own Paper. In The Silly Side of Sherlock Holmes he created 'A Brand New Adventure Using A Bunch of Old Pictures' from the Strand Magazine. Now, in The Scandalous Life of the Lawless Sisters, he has exposed the antics of one of the Victorian underworld's most notorious and feared all-female gangs by applying new captions to pictures from Punch of 1880.
