A Fish Auction in Columbia Market

In 1869 Baroness Burdett-Coutts paid for the building of the great Columbia Market (for fish) between Hackney and Bethnal Green Roads on the site of Nova Scotia Gardens, a squalid area of tenements and hovels and dust heaps. The cost of building the market was estimated at 200, 000. It was a philanthropic enterprise to make a clearance of the slum dwellings which clustered so thickly in the area but also to help the local people to have supplies of cheap fresh produce. Lack of support from wholesalers and small traders who preferred the open streets ensured its failure and it closed in 1885 and eventually became a bit of a white elephant and was demolished between 1958 and 1966"

Fourth Term, East India Company's Military Seminary

Photograph: 'Fourth Term, East India Company's Military Seminary, Addiscombe, June 1857'. One of 53 photographs. Intended to train the Company?s military cadets, Addiscombe (in Surrey) was opened in 1809. It cost about 300 to put a young gentleman through the course. As usual with 19th century educational institutions, the pupils led a tough existence, which might have helped them to cope with the hard career path they had chosen in India. They also learned Indian languages which were essential if they were to successfully command native infantry, cavalry and engineer units. The college closed in 1861 after the abolition of Company rule. The Company also maintained training camps at Newport on the Isle of White, Warley in Essex and Chatham in Kent. Date: 1857
