Old Photos of Witham

Railway Mission Home, St Leonards

Taken: 10 March 1908, Ref: M2838

‘Railway Mission Home, St Leonard’s. Not clear why this is with the Skingsley and Smith photos. The 1901 census doesn’t show any Essex men at this home. (RG 13/870, f.114-115, pp.22-24). There were then 31 residents, plus servants and a Secretary and matron.
