  • London trip 1903

    Some photos from a photoalbum in the Copenhagen City Archives, 1903.

    The Travel Scholarship Association for Craftsmen and Industrialists.



    A trip to London and I couldn't resist posting the last photo of happy frolics at some seaside resort, probably Brighton.


    I think the photo of the Victoria Home is 39-41 Commercial Street, built 1887?

      Great photo of the Victoria Home, Kattrup!

      I think you are right that the seaside photo may well be Brighton. The photo with the Telegraph Branch Office is Brighton and I think the other street scene might also be.

          I wonder if the group outside the Victoria Home were the tourists from Copenhagen. They look a v. respectable bunch, which may give an indication of how respectable the Home itself was.

          So a man such as Hutch who lived there might not have lead so chaotic a lifestyle that he didn’t know what day of the week it was - as has been suggested.

            Hi Nina,

            How cute is that little dog cart?

              Not a bad thought, Gary...

                Isn't that a goat cart? The goat has his head back? It gave me the idea to get a cart and train one of my goats.

                  Gary,

                  I think it's the cutest thing.

                    Thank you, Kattrup. I especially enjoy the Victoria Home. Temperance apparently is a big deal in that establishment and I wonder if that is why they had a firm closing time, i.e. Hutchinson walking the streets all night because his lodgings had already closed? By closing somewhat early perhaps they discouraged drunken guests?

                      You could be right, Anna. But I think those small carts were called ‘dog carts’?

                        I wonder how long their watch chains lasted?

                          I was hoping to hear that they’d at least had their pockets picked.

                            Thanks for the replies, everyone, and thanks Gary for the clipping. I wouldn’t have thought the visit would have been worth writing about for the locals.

                            Hopefully there are more albums out there, as we know the murder sites were in fact visited by tourists in the following years we might locate a few photos still.
