Fellow. and Tutor of Christ's College, Cambridge
The name of Wedgwood, the potter, has -through his craft and industry-become a household word throughout the world. But, one of the creators of the Industrial Revolution, he was far more than an industrialist. * His liberalism, humanity and devotion to art,' says Dr. Plumb, ' made him one of the most outstanding yet typical figures of his age.'

Appeal on behalf of the Hostels for Crippled and Invalid Women Workers by Anona Winn .
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Hostels for Crippled and Invalid Women Workers were founded in 191 for the training in fine needlework and subsequent employment of severely physically disabled girls and women, who are thus enabled to live and work in conditions specially adapted to their needs. A small proportion are able to go out into the world to earn their living, but the majority remain in the Hostels where they are encouraged to live as independently as possible.
There is now, also, a small house for those workers who have reached the age of retirement, thus ensuring their security and peace of mind.
The cost of maintenance is considerable. In addition, a heavy debt was incurred when the new building was erected.
by Walter Besant and James Rice
