Prince Albert laying the foundation stone of St. Mary's Hospital Paddington, 1845. The site of the intended building is at the North end of Cambridge-place, Cambridge-terrace, not far from the Terminus of the Great Western Railway [in London]...The trowel was then handed by the Hon. Architect, Mr. Hopper, to the Prince, who proceeded to spread the mortar, which was presented on a polished mahogany board by Mr. [George Russell] French, architect; and the stone, a block of grey granite, weighing one ton and a half, was lowered into its place amidst loud applause, the band at the same time playing "God save the Queen", which was sung by the children of the schools and the persons present, the Prince and the Bishop joining in the anthem...The portion of the building about to be erected will accommodate 150 in-door patients'.

Barking fishing boats, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured January Print

Barking fishing boats, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Barking fishing boats, 1844. ...fishing-smacks, belonging to Barking, in Essex; of which vessels...no fewer than sixty were lying in the river [Thames], a little below Woolwich, their crews having brought them home from sea, and struck work...Frequently...the smacks only come up the river as far as Gravesend, and having discharged their cargo of fish into the hatch-boats that ply between that place and the London market, they take in fresh provision and return to sea. This is called making a "Gravesend voyage". It tends to keep the men longer from their homes and families, but effects a great saving of time to the owners...The demands of the men are for increased wages and shorter voyages. Their present rate...is: men fourteen shillings a week, and mates sixteen. They want this to be advanced two shillings in each case, and the time of absence to be limited to one month'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
