John Groom's Orphanage, Clacton-on-Sea, Essex
'Some of Our Girls' at John Groom's 'Orphanage and Crippleage' opened in 1890 at Clacton on Sea, Essex. Groom was a London engraver and evangelical preacher, whose concern for poor and often disabled flower sellers, and for deprived and orphaned children, led him to set up a charity which in 1907 became John Groom's Crippleage and Flower Girls Mission.
