Inside a tent on Mitcham Common

Inside a tent on Mitcham Common, the home to two men, their wives, and fourteen children of various ages. Mr. George Smith, social reformer of Coalville, Leicester, visited this encampment and commented on the "wretched and miserable" living conditions. Finding a woman recently given birth in this tent, Smith was moved to give her a small amount of money, on which the mother insisted in her gratitude that he could name the child whatever he chose. The child was named 'Deliverance'.

The military review - the camp at Chobham

The military review - the camp at Chobham. The troops returning to their encampment after a field-day, 1853.Coloured tinted lithograph by Edmund Walker after Louis Haghe (1806-1885), published by Ackermann and Co, 8 Oct 1853.In addition to providing practical training for the Army, Chobham Camp was designed to be a military spectacle entailing splendid royal reviews. Lord Hardinge credited Prince Albert with the formation of the camp and the royal family visited it frequently. A number of marquees and small tents were erected on Magnet Hill, the camp Headquarters, which served as a banqueting hall and suite of apartments for the royal party and distinguished guests.Even before the camp was complete, it had become part of the social ?Season?, attracting crowds on their way to the Ascot Races. Once the regiments had arrived, Chobham drew large numbers of visitors who flocked to witness this exhibition of British military prowess with its glittering array of uniforms. In an attempt to profit from the huge popularity of Chobham Camp, a number of artists and printmakers produced pictorial souvenirs whilst 'The Illustrated London News' published a diary of each day's events. Date: 1853
