1875 Exhibition Photo
<     1875 Working Men's Art and Industrial Exhibition - Photo 2 of 8     >

Photo showing some of the exhibits in the Corn Exchange. The large painting toward the top left is the well known painting of Elizabeth Fry reading to the prisoners at Newgate by Jerre Barratt - a painting which in more recent times was used as the basis for the illustration on the £5 note.

Photo taken by the Leighton Buzzard photographers Messrs. Piggott. The original from which this scan has been taken is in the possession of The Rothschild Archive London, who have kindly given permission for it to be reproduced on this web site.
