Port Sunlight - a workers' utopia Featured Print

Port Sunlight - a workers' utopia

Page from The Illustrated London News with photographs reporting on the model factory village of Port Sunlight on the Wirral, near Birkenhead. Established by William Hesketh Lever, later Lord Leverhulme, the village provided spacious accommodation and numerous amenities for workers at the Lever Brothers soap factory. Images of the schools built by labour, the open air swimming pool, a Sunday School procession and the picturesque houses all testify to the wholesome way of life enjoyed by Port Sunlight's inhabitants. Date: 1905

Sunlight Soap - cut-out advertising trade card

Sunlight Soap - cut-out advertising trade card. A Young man gazes (somewhat glazed over) at a vast tract of text advertising Sunlight Soap which states (by dint of the headings) 'Why does a Woman look old sooner than a man?' - hinting that the use of Sunlight will prevent this from happening! Date: circa 1890s

Royal Victoria Hospital Farm Colony, Polton, Scotland

Patients plough the land and plant seed potatoes at the Farm Colony (founded in 1910) at The Royal Victoria Hospital, founded in 1894. Together with the Dispensary these formed the nucleus of the 'Edinburgh Scheme' for combating tuberculosis. In 1914, the Dispensary, Hospital and Farm Colony were given to the City of Edinburgh and the Royal Victoria Tuberculosis Trust was founded. These came under the management of the Royal Victoria and Associated Hospitals NHS Trust in 1948, and the North Lothian District of Lothian Health Board in 1974. Date: circa 1910
