A postgraduate student project on the lives of London’s destitute children in the Victorian and early Edwardian periods; from ‘ragged’ schools, to those sent abroad to be ‘reformed’. View an exhibition exploring what it meant to be a penniless child in a changing world, and join in discussions on the challenges and ethical issues of representing the poor. Were they problems to be dealt with or dependents just needing a chance at life? We will look at how destitute children were perceived by society, and how some of the charities that helped them still exist today.
