James’ parents died of a disease called cholera in 1832. During the 19th century, cholera spread across the world. Cholera is a bacterial disease usually spread through dirty water. Cholera causes severe diarrhoea and dehydration (when the body doesn’t have enough water). Did you notice that Alice is taller than James. James became an inmate of a workhouse aged 2. At the Workhouse James’s diet would have lacked the minerals needed to grow a healthy body. Walk Disease Street with James Wilson.
