The Pauper's Palace, by Anne Connelly

Booklet published by the Fulham and Hammersmith Historical Society in 1979, 28 pages. A5 size booklet (S5667)

This booklet charts the history of Poor Relief in Hammersmith at the turn of the century, a period which coincided with the building of an immensley grand and ornate house and infirmary, which effectively bankrupted the local Board of Guardians, and did next to nothing to alleviate the poverty and distress of the local population!

Condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has some minor scuffs and blemishes, and a few small yellow marks on the bottom right hand corner of the front, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
