Exam technique How far do sources agree/disagree?
How far do the sources agree/disagree? This question asks you to compare two sources Dr Keith gave evidence and said, “The crowding is fearful. I have seen seven or eight sleeping in one tiny room, and have more than once been nearly suffocated on entering an apartment… sometimes the stench of waste is intolerable and this is bound to affect the health of the residents. “I mind the time when there were 14 of us sharing the yin room. In the nicht we had to do oor business ahent a curtain, in a big pot called a chanty. We never noticed any smells maybe doon tae the fact that we were brought up in that environment, an were probably used to it, but I mind the vicar used tae wrinkle his nose when he visited an he never stayed lang.” Source A is a Report on the sanitary conditions of the Aberdeen poor in 1840 Source B is from the mem\oirs of an old fisherman from Aberdeen about 1845.
