  • London’s last surviving Catholic Embassy Chapel of Penal Times – IanVisits
    Spitalfields Life The Ladies who Bus Wanstead Meteo West Hampstead Life Located on a side street near Soho can be found a modest looking building with a history seeped in riot anti catholic executions and war In the 1680s the Portuguese Embassy was based in a fine building overlooking Golden Square and despite England s fervent Protestantism as it was foreign soil a catholic chapel was permitted to be built at the back of the building At some point the Portuguese moved out and the Bavarian s took over Anti catholic feeling was running high in the last 1770s and consummated in the notorious Gordon Riots which saw many Catholic buildings destroyed including the Bavarian embassy s chapel The current building dates from those turbulent times The Bavarian embassy moved out and Bishop of the London District Bishop Talbot secured a lease on the land for a new openly catholic church The new church s external simple brick modesty a reflection of the sensible desire to avoid standing out too much against the rest of the buildings in the area The gilt angels on the outside date from the 1950s when it was felt safe to add a bit more ostentation to the exterior As such although the building is new the site is old and that makes it the last surviving Catholic embassy chapel that dates from the penal times when being a Catholic was illegal The church has also retained its long links with the Bavarian royal family and there is a plaque inside to the memory of Crown Prince Rupert of Bavaria He was when he died in 1955 the head of the Royal Houses of Stuart Wittelsbach Tudor Plantagenet and Cerdic which probably makes him more British than Bavarian The current Duke of Bavaria is still

  • Photographing Soldiers and Suffragettes – IanVisits
    she is credited as being the first such press photographer who took her work outside the studio and into the streets Born in 1862 she didn t take up photography in earnest until she was in her 40s and by necessity following an accident which rendered her husband unable to work full time He still worked as her assistant as did her daughter A family firm that took photographs and printed them into the then incredibly popular postcards and sold them often back to the subjects of the photos themselves She was also a canny businesswoman often pushing through crowds to get the best photo and not adverse to dropping business cards around if it meant possible access to a commercially lucrative subject In that time such subjects were the Royal Family and she built up a decent relationship with them to take a lot of photos over the years She also became a semi official military photographer being allowed inside Chelsea Barracks and recording intimate moments within Being a working class self taught and female put her off the establishment radar she was quite an establishment photographer focusing very much on establishment figures and institutions Understandable as that s where the money lay but her willingness to deliberately overlook photos which might have been less flattering puts her strongly in the camp of portrait photographer rather than press journalist That changed somewhat when she started photographing the suffragette movement Only in the early days as she distanced herself later on as the movement became more violent possibly because she disagreed or as speculated because her association with them could have harmed her more lucrative establishment photography While most of the photos which have gone on display at the Museum of London Docklands are of typical staged settings which was
