Woman (perhaps Miss Hunt) and children, in the back garden of Horwood House (59 Newland Street). It was a children’s home run by Miss Hunt on Montessori lines for disadvantaged children from London.
This photo is the frontispiece in the book ‘The Unrelated Family’, which was written by A Vera G Wright. She helped at the home from June 1918 for a time. Her book does not give names to either the home or the town, but ERO T/P 133/26 names them. Miss Hunt is mentioned in directories for 1922 and 1926. The book is scarce, and I gave my copy to the Essex Record Office in 2006.
