Along Hatton Garden
These figures can be seen as you walk down Hatton Garden, London's gold and jewelery sector. The building has quite a history. Built as a chirch after the Great Fire in 1666, it became a charity school around 1700, from when these children in 18th Century costume date. The building was damaged in WWII, but the statues had been sent away for safe keeping. the building has been restored, and the statues returned. I don't know if you'll be able to make out in the large photo, but the boy is holding a bible and the girl a piece of writing. The building is now offices.
Another take on charity schools tomorrow.
