Homes of the Homeless: Seeking Shelter in Victorian LondonThe Geffrye Museum's display on Homes Of The Homeless: Seeking Shelter In Victorian London promises to be fascinating exhibition on a subject close to home. Using first hand accounts the Hackney museum looks at the problem of homelessness in Victorian London through paintings, photographs, and objects, as well as personal stories and reports. From 1840s onwards, the exhibition shows how London's poor were affected by slum clearance to make way for the railways, and how they managed to find shelter.

 

About Geffrye Museum

There aren't many museums that can have William Morris and Ikea under the same roof, but the Geffyre is one of them. The focus of this quirky museum is the changing style of English domestic interior, from the 1600s to the present. More about Geffrye Museum
