Pennybacker's social background checks the imaginative and prescient of London Progressivism opposed to its practitioners' accomplishments. She argues that the historic reminiscence of the hopes encouraged by means of LCC success and the disillusions spawned by means of failure, are effective forces in cutting-edge deeply ambivalent responses to metropolitan politics in London. The `new women', bohemian London, scandal within the construction undefined, midwifery, accommodation homes, kid's provision and the song corridor have been all provocative concerns in LCC paintings. Their tale richly conjures up existence within the turn-of-the-century city and illustrates the complexities of `municipal socialism'.
