Hogarth, Gin Lane Featured Print

Hogarth, Gin Lane

Hogarth, Gin Lane. A political print supporting a ministerial measure against the unlimited sale of gin (which later became the Gin Act). A scene of London life is depicted in which the pawnbrokers, gin cellar and distillery are now flourishing, and people's lives are being destroyed by their addiction to gin, with examples of infanticide, starvation, madness, decay and suicide.

Union Workhouse, Thame, Oxfordshire Featured Print

Union Workhouse, Thame, Oxfordshire

A view of the Thame Union workhouse from one of its internal yards with the workhouse chapel in the background. Posed for the photographer are what appear to be the workhouse master (standing, right), the matron (seated, centre), and two female staff in nurse's uniform (seated). The other standing figures may be members of the master's family. The workhouse, built in 1836 to a design by George Wilkinson, later became Rycotewood College.

Strangling of the Beer Bill by Lord Brougham Featured Print

Strangling of the Beer Bill by Lord Brougham

Newspaper article, Strangling (with a misprint!) of the Beer Bill by Lord Brougham and other peers in the House of Lords. The writer claims that many families will be ruined as a result, and that it will disadvantage poor and working class people. The move was designed to limit the sale of beer amongst the poorer population by partially repealing the Sale of Beer Act (or Beerhouse Act) of 1830.
circa 1839
