Band of Hope Review

The 1855 issue of the Band of Hope Review & Children’s Friend features lots of lovely illustrations. Here is the front cover drawn by J Knight & A Anelay and published by Partridge & Co, London and W & F G Cash.

The Band of Hope Review was aimed at educating children and was widely distributed by the Sunday School Union.

The inside pages contain features and stories for children, poems and snapshots of life in the home. The publication illustrates how idyllic life in Victorian times was and the benefits of living in the countryside. Sketches of ‘happy’ children from around the world are featured, including those children working in the orphanages.

Inside issue No.56 (August 1855), features a story entitled ‘Pleasures of the Country’ and an illustration depicting farming life in the East Riding of Yorkshire. [1]
