19th Century history of the RVP

19th Century history of the RVP

19th Century
Funded by Prince Albert’s Royal Patriotic Fund, the building was intended for the ‘Education and Training of three hundred Orphan Daughters of Soldiers, Seamen and Marines who perished in the Russian War, and for those who hereafter may require like succour’ . Originally named as the Royal Victoria Patriotic Asylum, the building was designed by Major Rhode Hawkins in a heroically ornate Gothic style. The foundation stone was laid by Queen Victoria on 11th July 1857 and the first phase was completed in 1858 to an almost entirely symmetrical plan form. The result was judged to be ‘bold, picturesque and effective’ by The Building News (October 8th,1858) . The first inmates were received on 1st July 1859.

Construction work was extremely rapid, taking only 18 months to complete. This was a result of many innovative features, including the use of iron filler joist floors of standard span, cast iron windows and stone dressings, roof trusses and decorative leadwork, all pre-fabricated off-site.

The Royal Victoria Patriotic Fund had raised the then colossal sum of ?1.5 million. No expense was spared in the intricacy of the design and the quality of construction. However, the building cost was only ?35,000, the builder being Mr George Myers of Belvedere Road , Lambeth. The symmetrical plan was altered to an asymmetrical Palladian layout by the addition of the dining hall (now used as a theatre), an annexe linked to the main building by a cloister, an infirmary to the south of the building and a chapel to the north. At the same time, an orphanage for boys was also built, this time in the Classical style, and is now used by Emanuel School.

Several small ancillary buildings also sprang up. These included a swimming pool and various small single storey buildings, including a greenhouse. Some of the buildings may have been used in connection with the market garden, which was tended by the orphans.

Life for the orphans was extremely harsh. Their work included pumping water by hand from an underground rainwater system in the rear courtyard up to the lead-lined slate water tanks in the towers. They had to launder all the clothes. Their heads were shaved to discourage head lice and they were made to assemble in the courtyards every morning to be hosed down with cold water. The patented warm air heating system failed to work. Fireplaces were added to the staff rooms but no heating was provided to the dormitories. The orphanage was nearly closed down after a scandal involving physical and sexual abuse by the Rector and the death of one of the orphans. Her ghost still allegedly roams the cloisters of the north and south courtyards.

Weight up!

Weight up!

Have you stubbed your toe on a weight you left laying on the floor in your dark basement recently? Not willing to spend that $75 bucks for a weight tree?

Why not make one? The total cost for this one is just under $20 dollars in hardware store parts!

Parts list:

(6) 1/2" by 8" long black nipple pipes (natural gas line works best)
(6) 1/2" flanges
(30) wood screws, about 1" long (four per flange, six for the hinge)
(1) door hinge
(1) piece of scrap lumber as tall as your ceiling, or so


Easy enough! Secure the flanges onto the lumber, evenly spaced, giving enough room for each weight of each size using four wood screws per flange.

Next, use a pipe wrench to attach the 8" pipe nipples into each flange. Optionally use thread compound to make turning them a bit easier.

Attach the hinge to the top of the lumber, mount it from the back using three wood screws.

Rest the lumber against a joist, a post, or some other sturdy structure, at about a 5-10 degree angle, or so.

Secure the lumber in place by attaching the other half of the hinge to the wall, post, joist using three wood screws.

Your done! Add your weights!

And so, 20 minutes and 20 dollars, and no more stubbed toes. Your weights and other equipment are safely stored away.
