23rd September 2017 – 22nd April 2018
The exhibition will look at Richmond from the point of view of the poorer classes. This will include the history of Richmond’s Workhouse, Almshouses and the individuals who worked to alleviate the suffering of the poor and the charities that continue to offer support today. As well as telling the story of an often overlooked class of people, the exhibition will look at individual people and their experiences of poverty.
This exhibition will be be based upon a new publication from Richmond Local History Society and has kindly been funded by the Richmond Parish Lands Charity, the Richmond Charities and the Barnes Workhouse Fund.
