The Inauguration of the Oxford House Building 1892

The inaugural ceremony was performed by H.R.H the Duke of Connaught and Duchess of Teck (as a royal approval) on 23rd of June 1892. The presence of archbishops, Canterbury and York, as well as six other bishops, was a tribute to the work of Oxford House.

But perhaps the most significant were the members of the University Club, ordinary Bethnal Greeners, with their banner containing the words “Education; Temperance; Religion; Equality; Fraternity; Success to Oxford House”.
