Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a soup kitchen where poor children are being given dinner. A woman ladles stew into bowls, and the children sit eating on benches. Loaves of bread are on a table. These dinners were organised by the Rev J M Vaughan of the poor parish of St George’s in the East, London in the 1870s. He also ran many other charitable organisations, including a Ragged School.
