The year is 1885.
The place is London. We are outcasts, the throwaways of society -- foundlings,
scapegraces, the disinherited and unwanted boys and men.
No one honours us,
so we must make our own honour. We form gangs, led by those who have proven
themselves on the streets. The gangs may help each other, but some have
formed bitter rivalries.
Those unfamiliar with
the London Hooligans may do well to read this
little warning before entering our world.
