(PHOTOGRAPH). The Montefiore Hebrew School. Class picture of female students.
Inscribed on verso: “Presented for remembrance to Minnie Greenbaum, by Joseph Terr(y). December 24th, 1907.” Handsome period wooden frame. 5 x 3 inches.
Most likely the Montefiore House School for Jewish Girls, London.
Established in 1905, the Montefiore House School for Jewish Girls operated from 69 Stamford Hill, Stoke Newington. The home accepted voluntary admissions as well as children committed by the courts. The girls were disciplined thoroughly and taught the domestic sciences. Ceasing operations by the 1950s, the building was razed, with the appropriately named Montefiore Court flats taking its place.
