GUEST,Murray on Saltspring Help: Victorian era childrens songs (6) RE: Help: Victorian era childrens songs 08 Apr 00

A good book closer to the time is that by Alice Bertha Gomme, "The Traditional Games of England, Scotland, and Ireland" (1894-1898)--reprinted in 1964 by Dover; it may still be in print, it certainly should be. It lists in alphabetical order about 600 (!) games, some of which would definitely be played by London children.
