John Passmore Edwards Web Site


I have attempted to bring together published and unpublished information on the work and life of one of the great Victorians. May I acknowledge the contributions of others and beg the pardon for those work I have used and have not yet acknowledged.

This site is based around drawings taken from " Passmore Edwards Institutions, Founding and Opening Ceremonies" by J J MacDonald, published in 1900 by The Strand Newspaper Company Ltd. Apart from Passmore Edwards' own account, "A Few Footprints", I have also leant firmly on "John Passmore Edwards, An account of his life and works" by Peter Bayne and "The Life and Good Works of John Passmore Edwards" by R S Best..
In addition to the current and past owners and users of the buildings may I also thank the following for their help, contributions or permission to use previously published material:
Adrian Forty and the Architects Journal; David Knight and the Acton History Group; Pensver Guides; Mrs Joyce Bellamy and the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association; sublimephotography;.Essex Record Office; Jeremy Shearmur and Greenwich Council; Herne Bay Library; Hammersmith & Fulham Archives; Maxine Murphy and the Workingmans Club Institutes Union; Cornwall Local Studies Library; Mike Bundock of Herne Bay, Charles Irwin, Elaine Owens, Katie Brains, Adrian Lewis,

May I also thank Ffinlo Kilner for setting me on course in web site construction.
