Richmond is an affluent area, but there have always been pockets of poverty. This exhibition was about the poor and how they lived. It will looked at the workhouses, almshouses and individuals who worked to alleviate the suffering of the poor and the charities which continue to offer support today.
The exhibition was be based upon a new publication from Richmond Local History Society and was funded by the Richmond Parish Lands Charity, the Richmond Charities, the Barnes Workhouse Fund and generous individual donors.
