Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. This week’s show comes to you from the exhibition Fate, Hope and Charity at The Foundling Museum. The guests are Janette Bright, independent researcher of the exhibition and Stephanie Chapman, the curator.
The trio discuss the history of the Foundling Hospital, where between 1741-60 impoverished or unfortunate mothers could leave their children. They use the exhibition to explore the touching stories behind some of the families who made use of the hospital and also reveal how they are able to piece some of these stories back together.
Fate, Hope and Charity is at The Foundling Museum until 19 May 2013.
