The Secret Life of Artur J. Munby: Munby was a middle-class civil-servant whose "hobby" was meeting with and interviewing, albeit unofficially, with working women (that is women who worked, not specifically prostitutes). He kept a diary of those meetings and interviews over a period of 40-odd years. As unusual as that would perhaps have been, the more shocking revelation would have been that for 32 of those years, he was secretly married to Hannah Cullwick, a maid-of-all-work. For a number of years, he and Hannah lived together as husband and wife, whilst all but a few close acquaintances thought Hannah was his housekeeper but for the bulk of their relationship, Hannah lived in various "situations" as maid, housekeeper, or servant in other peoples' homes. Both Munby and Cullwick left diaries which illuminate the lives of the Victorian working woman, as well as the curious and forbidden cross-class relationship.
