New Alms-houses at Northfleet, 1844. Creator: Unknown

New Alms-houses at Northfleet, 1844. These buildings have just been erected at Northfleet [in Kent], from the design of Mr. W. Chadwick, of Adelaide-place, London-bridge. The present design, however, only comprises twelve dwellings - the intended number being forty. They have been built from the private funds of Mr. John Huggins, of Sittingbourne, Kent, and are intended for the peaceful havens of those persons who, in common parlance, "have seen better days"; each of whom is to receive, in addition to this abode, a pension of twenty-one shillings per week. In the centre is a chapel, of neat design, in the pointed style, with a lofty spire'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

London Charterhouse, 1803 (1906). Artist: James Sargant Storer

London Charterhouse, 1803 (1906). The London Charterhouse is a historic complex of buildings in Smithfield, London dating back to the 14th century. It was originally a Carthusian monastery. The Tudor house had a number of notable tenants: it was a former residence of Bassano family of instrument makers, and was a residence of Edward North (c1496-1564) which was used in 1558 by Queen Elizabeth I during the preparations for her coronation. Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk (1536-1572) renamed the property Howard House, passing it on to Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk (1561-1626). In 1603, James I (1566-1625) held court at the house on his first entrance into London. In May 1611 the complex was acquired by Thomas Sutton (1532-1611) who endowed an almshouse and school there in his will. From Medieval London, Vol. II - Ecclesiastical by Sir Walter Besant. [Adam & Charles Black, London, 1906]
