Lady Muriel Paget & children, WW1

Lady Muriel Paget (1876 - 1938), nee Finch-Hatton, wife of Sir Richard Surtees Paget, second Baronet of Oldfallings Hall, Wolverhampton. Lady Paget was a humanitarian relief worker, first establishing soup kitchens in the poor districts of London, becoming secretary of the Invalid Kitchens Fund. She then opened a kitchen catering for Belgian refugees in London at the start of the First World War. Her work then extended to Russia and Eastern Europe where she opened field and base hospitals, ambulances and worked indefatigably for the poor and needy both during and after the war - lobbying, training, recruiting social workers and nurses. In 1924 she organised the rescue and relief of stranded Britons in Russia called the British Subjects in Russia Relief Association. Lady Paget had five children, who were cared for by a nanny while their mother worked abroad almost continuously. Pictured here with her three daughters, Sylvia Mary, born 1901, Pamela Winefred, born 1903 and Angela Sibell, born 1906. The Sketch remarks on her work saying, Lady Muriel is much interested in the founding of Invalid Kitchens in the East End, in the running of which she is an expert, and also in various other forms of charitable effort and of war-work. Date: 1917

Communal Kitchens, WWI by Will Owen Featured Print

Communal Kitchens, WWI by Will Owen

Cartoon by Will Owen, a humorous comment on the rise of the communal kitchen, introduced during the First World War as a way of providing war workers and the poor with nourishing meals, produced in the most efficient and economical way possible. This cartoon appeared after Alderman C. F. Spencer, Director of National Kitchens outlined a proposal for the establishments where distribution could potentially be via tramways, motor or gas-bag buses. He also mentioned how hanging baskets could be used to decorate the kitchens, music from gramophones or electric pianos could pass the time while people were waiting to be served and public baths might be used for washing dish cloths! Owen has done his best to visualise this Utopia with tongue firmly in cheek.
