Originally published 1974. Thousands of elementary schools for the children of the poor were founded during the nineteenth century, yet there is scarcely a published history of a single one of them. This volume is precisely such a history and the authors trace its story against the background of local and national change in education and society. On the basis of a unique collection of records the authors have pieced together a picture of the social composition of the school, its curriculum and teaching methods, and its administration and finance. They relate the history of the school to that of London and the church, to that of educational authorities and educational policy.Date Pupila#39;s Name in Full Date of Birth Instruction Parent or Guardian 1 Feb 16 Rowe Albert 22 July 1864 No David ... 1864 No Elizabeth Bown Wardrobe Dealer 4 , , Smith Dana#39;l Ra#39;d 1 May 1865 No John George Smith Blacksmith 5 , ... 1865 No Wa#39;m Cloves Lighter-man principal warder, foreman, packer, brass finisher, engineer, carman, compositor, ... musicians and boarding housekeepers ), as well as a proportion of general manual trades, such as porters, labourers and packers.
