A Study of the Diet of the Labouring Classes in Edinburgh

Excerpt from A Study of the Diet of the Labouring Classes in Edinburgh: Carried Out Under the Auspices of the Town Council of the City of Edinburgh The authors desire to record their indebtedness to the Town Council of the City of Edinburgh who, upon the recommendation of the Committee of Public Health, granted the sum of fifty pounds towards the expenses of these investigations. They believe that this is the first occasion upon which a Municipal Authority has in such an enlightened manner manifested its interest in the well-being of the poorer citizens, and they venture to hope that the example of Edinburgh will be followed by other Urban and Rural Authorities, and that in this way a wider knowledge will be gained of that most important factor in the prosperity of a community, the food supply of its labouring classes. The authors also tender their thanks to the ladies who so ably supervised that portion of the research which was conducted in the houses of the labouring classes. Mrs. Shaw MacLaren, Miss H. Bell, Miss Isabel Simson, Miss May Simson, Miss Pringle, Miss Cunningham, Miss Robertson, Miss H. MacLaren, and Miss Colly, all deserve special credit for having brought to successful issue the studies in which they were engaged. The analytic and other work in connection with these studies was carried out in the Laboratory of the Royal College of Physicians.
