Outing to Epping Forest

Outing to Epping Forest

The location is unidentified but the photograph immediately follows a watercolour showing a children's picnic at Highfield in the Epping Forest.

The group includes an unidentified black woman near the centre of the back row.

From an album presented to Annie F. Childe by her father, Reverend Charles Frederick Childe (1807-1897) on 19 August 1862, according to a hand-painted dedication on the first page. From 1839 to 1858 he was the principal of the Church Missionary College in Islington. From 1858 to 1884 he was the Rector of Holbrook in Suffolk. He also appears to have been involved with a reformatory for wayward boys.

Photographer unidentified.
