Sanitary Garden Parties





Health, Disease, Class, Sanitation, Human Development, Gender, Patronage

    Noting the usually pleasant nature of garden parties, describes 'parties which are still more pleasant things', namely those where poor children are allowed to play and enjoy the fresh air. Notes that during the previous eight summers 'one Society' has made this possible for 'some thousands of poor children' at less than a 'half-penny a head'. Stresses how 'great a pleasure may be given with a very little money' and praises the Ladies' Sanitary Association for enabling this to happen. Concludes by inviting financial donations to the association.
