Down and out: lives of tramps and vagrants 1750-1950

This talk will look at the experiences of vagrants and the attempts to help or hinder them in the bleak casual wards of the workhouses.


Simon Fowler worked at The National Archives on and off for thirty years. He is now a freelance history researcher and writer. He wrote Workhouse: the people, the places, life behind closed doors (The National Archives, 2007) which was critically acclaimed and has become a standard text on the subject.

His talk will look at the experiences of vagrants and the attempts to help or hinder them in the bleak casual wards of the workhouses, as well as by the hypocritical charities and exploitative private landlords.

Admission price £8.00 (Members of the Florence Nightingale Museum £5.00) To book, please contact Katie Edwards on katie@florence-nightingale.co.uk or 020 7620 0374.
