Steam Punk

Heres the sketch for something I'm working on at the moment. I realised I had a problem with steam punk, & that is I can think Victoriana without thinking pollution, poverty, social injustice, the excesses of imperialism, yes even in my fantastical imaginings have a social agenda, At what cost would gleaming crystal palaces, zepplins, robots & steam machines come at ?.. so Here's the waifs, but we couldn't leave them there in the stinking workhouse, thank goodness for the philanthropists!
