Description

Photo © 2017 Alan Tucker – Whitechapel Wash Houses

In 1837 Princess Victoria became Queen of a nation whose trade and manufacturing had blossomed because of the Industrial Revolution and the establishment of the British Empire. But this success had a human cost.

This is an exploration of Victorian philanthropy in the dark area that clung to the northeastern corner of the City, a story of soup kitchens and slum clearance. Wash houses and galleries appeared alongside model dwellings and refuges.
