Bridewell Hospital was a house of correction : a prison for the homeless, criminals, unmarried mothers and prostitutes. To prevent inmates re-offending and to correct their wrong-doings, they were made to do hard physical labour some were subjected to beatings. This print shows women and young children, with straw filled stalls to sleep in. 'Bridewell became the general name for houses of correction throughout England. The hospital remained open from 1553 to 1855.
This print appeared as one in a series of illustrations looking at London s architecture called The Microcosm of London, published 1808-1810. The buildings were drawn by Augustus Charles Pugin (c. 1762-1832), a French draughtsman, and the figures were drawn by Thomas Rowlandson (1764-1834), a celebrated British caricaturist.
