Photo Details

This is a 1898 photo, Eliza Davis (nee Preston) is on the bottom left corner. I believe that it is a photo of women in a workhouse in Worcester, but I have not confirmed that yet. Eliza's age was about 45 years at the time of the photo. 1898 was one year before her son William was sent to Canada as a Home Child. Eliza's husband John Davis had died 8 years prior and the children were being cared for by her mother-in-law, Hanna Davis (EWINS). Eliza and John had 4 boys, Alfred, George, William and James. One girl died as a baby.

Mystery: What group is this? Where is it taken? Is it a work house or a church group?
