Photographer's Note

Following the previous uploading, I think that I should show you around a bit the 'reality' inside the Workhouse. I'd heard a lot of stories about Workhouses before I visited this one. This is one of the most complete workhouses in existence in Britain, even though most of the rooms are empty. I guess that one is because of its history, second is that the developer was going to convert it into flats before the National Trust took over, most of the contents had been sold. The house became a shelter for unmarried mothers with child later, there is a room displayed in 60's style, some visitors spotted that they got date wrong on some of the items. The Workhouse was still in use in early 90's. Life had been improved a lot since Victorian time, but it was still far from ideal to bring up a child in the Workhouse. I'll upload some photos to show you what it was like in 60's on Workshop for you to have a look. Thanks for looking.
BTW, Thanks to Gert for his helpful critique on my previous uploading.
