In the final episode of the series, the slum dwellers move into the 20th century and social change is in the air. Community spirit is embodied by the arrival of the Co-operative Movement, and shopkeepers the Birds have members to look after, rather than customers to profit from.
The slum dwellers have moved into the 1890s, when Britain was slowly recovering from an economic depression. Cheap foodstuffs and mass manufactured goods have found their way into the slum’s shop, but only some of the residents can afford them.
The slum dwellers have moved into the 1880s - a turbulent decade for London’s East End. Unemployment was sky high and living conditions intolerable but still people came, desperate for work.
The slum dwellers have left behind the 1860s, when London was the richest city on earth and it was hard but possible to make ends meet. Now they must live through a dire economic depression that blighted the 1870s.
