In the 1840's the East End of London was packed with tailors and drapers stores, selling trousers, coats and jackets at very low prices. Often these businesses relied on immigrants who worked in sweat shops, toiling for many hours and being paid very low wages, one firm that utilised these sweat shops was Elias Moses & Son. They were a chain of stores around London, selling men's wear. They printed many leaflets like this one advertising their low prices.
