Caricature of The Two Obadiahs Featured Print

Caricature of The Two Obadiahs

Caricature of The Two Obadiahs, J Willing Senior and J Willing Junior. "What! Disgrace your family name, Jim, by writing plays! What next!" 'James Willing' was actually a pseudonym for John Thomas Douglass (1842-1917), manager of the Standard Theatre, Shoreditch, London, and it is not clear whether the younger 'Willing' existed or was simply just another pseudonym, to avoid Douglass's name appearing as the author of too many plays.
1882

Hackney Union School, Brentwood, Essex Featured Print

Hackney Union School, Brentwood, Essex

The Hackney Union School at Brentwood. In 1885 Hackney took over what had been the Brentwood District School, originally set up by the Shoreditch Board of Guardians in 1854 to house pauper children away from the workhouse. From about 1917, the site was used by the Metropolitan Asylums Board to house 'sane epileptics'. It later became known as St Faith's Hospital.
