“The Evil and How Occasioned”: Caring for Migrants in a Victorian City
March 24 at1:30 pm - 2:30 pm$12 – $15
In the 19th century, middle-class Victorians were eager to be involved in charitable causes. They donated money and time into various philanthropic projects. When it came to helping the poor, middle-class Victorians were eager to provide a moral education to them. But what motivated Victorians to help? Did they have a hidden agenda? Dalnavert Museum’s Intern Curator Rammy Saini explores these questions by looking at the establishment of the Strangers’ Home for Asiatics, a charitable lodging house for Indians in Victorian London.
This talk will take place in our Visitors’ Centre at 1:30 PM. Coffee, tea, and treats will be provided!
