Description

Snaresbrook Infant Orphan Asylum, was founded by Rev Andrew Reed (1787-1862) in 1827. Antique steel engraved print published in 1845. The Children’s Home was first situated in Hackney Roads, and then in Reed’s own home in Cambridge Heath, before finally being housed in purpose built premises in Essex. The building is now the home of Snaresbrook Crown Court. This antique print is from ‘Curiosities of Great Britain. England and Wales Delineated. Historical, Entertaining & Commercial, Alphabetically Arranged  by Thomas Dugdale, Antiquarian. Assisted by William Burnett.’ (Dugdale was a professional artist, whilst Burnett was a civil engineer by profession.) Together they produced a series of steel engraved prints of English and Welsh architectural and topographical features, together with County Maps. Thanks to Wikipedia for the linked information.
