Working Girls' Home, Manchester

This building, established by a philanthropic society, was built in the 1890s. Part of the building was occupied by a Ragged School. The working girls home was on the top floor with its own entrance. It provided accommodation for servant girls with kitchens, laundries and individual cubicles. The girls would otherwise have had to rent a room in a lodging house where they could have been mixing with men or even criminals.
