Default Hammersmith II

Retracing our steps to Hammersmith, "Sussex and Brandenburgh Houses are included in one license to Dr. L. S. F. Winslow. Gentlemen are received at the former, and ladies at the latter house."

Yes this was L. Forbes Winslow, who expounded on Jack the Ripper and other crimes. In fact he was raised at the asylum, his father operating it then. The next year after this 1884 list was compiled however, he severed his ties with the asylum in a bitter legal dispute with in-laws.

At Hayes Park, located twelve miles west of London "the wooded park in which the house stands affords for good walks, and carriages are kept for the patients' use." The average payment was 300 pounds per year. One mention was - "Last year a house was taken at Bognor and 6 of the patients passed some time there." A seaside retreat.
