Anthony will revisit Rev. Charles Spurgeon’s 1885 Boxing Night ‘lecture’, “Street Characters and Cries.” in which he used his magic lantern to entertain his congregation at the South Street Baptist Chapel, Greenwich.
The photographs showed a variety of the street sellers who plied their trade throughout the town. Some of them are dressed in their best for the occasion whilst others go barefoot. The talk will investigate the purpose of the show, and then look out for their heirs and successors in the present day
March 21st 2018 at James Wolfe Royal Hill Campus. Meetings commence at 7.30, doors open 7.15. We welcome non-members, from whom we invite a donation of £3 for each meeting.
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS ONE WEEK EARLIER THAN PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED AND WILL TAKE PLACE ON MARCH 21.
