Dr. Barnardo's Homes for orphans and destitute children are well known compared to his work for poor families in the East End. He founded the East End Juvenile Mission in 1868 which gave birth to the famous Homes and the little known Ragged Schools in Copperfield Road. Here in warehouses on the banks of the Regent's Canal, thousands of children from the poorest homes in the locality reeived free education, free meals in the winter months and help towards theis first job.
Tom Ridge, who formany years taught geography at a nearby school and founded the Ragged School Museum Trust in 1983, tells the fascinating story of the Copperfield Road Ragged Schools. He explores their links with other agencies run by Dr. Barnardo in the East End and tells how the buildings were subsequently taken over by the "rag trade".
