3. London social decadence British decadence takes form in the late nineteenth century as both a reflection of and reaction to the urban plan of its capital city. London decadence has this in common with Parisian decadence, but with several significant differences. For one, London had a population double that of Paris; in fact, with a population of almost six and a half million people by the end of the 1890s, it was the largest city in the world.
