Hi How/Debs/Chris,

Henry Walker's book, East London (Sketches of Christian Work and Workers), published by The Religious Tract Society in 1896, contains a chapter titled: George Yard, Whitechapel. Said chapter includes an interview with George Holland regarding his George Yard Mission.

My regards,

Sean.

What a great picture!

My granddad and his brother started at GY School in March, 88. At the time they were living at 22, GYB and they seem to have lived in the Buildings at different addresses until Dec., 1890 when their father died. In April, 1891, they and their widowed mother were living a short distance away in Angel Alley.

I wonder if they ever encountered Holland?

Thatīs quite a heritage, Gary - BOTH venues from the Tabram murder night!

Hi Gary,

They may well have encountered George Holland; until his death in 1900 he remained in close contact with the George Yard Mission and Ragged School.

If you can get hold of a copy of Walker's book, it's well worth a read.

I came across Holland's name years ago, but had never seen a photo of him - thanks Debs!

My regards,

Sean.

Not bad, is it?

The man went on to marry a woman who had been born in Breezer's Hill and who was living in Pinchin Street at the time of the wedding... and there's plenty more, even without the Winthrop Street knackers.

Hi Sean,

I'll look out for it. Holland seems a nice, avuncular sort of old geezer.
