Towards the end of the nineteenth century in the United States Jacob Riis (1849-1914) and Lewis Hine (1874-1940) were committed to social change. When Jacob Riis published his first book, How the Other Half Lives on the overcrowded New York slums in 1890 it was a damning statement on societal ills.[1] The book included seventeen halftone illustrations from photographs and a further nineteen hand drawings.

The journalist and novelist Stephen Crane (1871-1900) published Maggie: A Girl of the Streets[2] in 1893 and the following year he wrote the article Experiment in Misery when he dressed as a bum and spent a night in a flophouse.[3]
