Itinerant pork butcher Jacob Isenschmidt, who was sent to Grove Hall Asylum, Bow in September 1888. At the time, police harbored suspicions of him. This photo was twenty years later in Colney Hatch.

Brook Green, Hammersmith appears a pleasant setting.
At Montague House "the patients are males, and of the quiet harmless class."

Roy:

Is the photo of Jacob Isenschmid ( Post 4 ) something previously unseen ?
I don't recall seeing that before...which leads me to ask, are there others ?

Thanks.

Yes there are others Howie. Credit to Casebook member Lynn Cates for the Isenschmidt photo in post 4. He obtained asylum records which Chris Scott transcribed.

Link to Photos (here) on pages 1 and 4
