The Penny Sit-Up, Salvation Army shelter, Blackfriars, London, c1900 (1901)

The Penny Sit-Up, Salvation Army shelter, Blackfriars, London, c1900 (1901). The Penny Sit-Up, one of the first homeless shelters to be created in Blackfriars, was operated by the Salvation Army during the late 19th century and early 20th century as a response to the high rates of homelessness due to eviction orders. The individuals could pay a penny to sit in the warm room all night. Lying down was not permitted. From Living London, Vol. 1, edited by George R. Sims. [Cassell and Company, Limited, London, Paris, New York & Melbourne, 1901]
