Hi there, please could you let me know the original source of the above still and where I may be able to find a larger collection of Earlswood Asylum stills (exterior & interior) circa 1880 to 1997. With thanks and best

Hi Ginita. All I know about the above is that the picture appeared in the Illustrated London News in 1854. There are some displays from Earlswood Asylum in the Belfry Shopping Centre in Redhill. You might be able to find out more from the person who maintains them, but I'm afraid I wouldn't know who to contact. There has been a book published I believe on the history of the Asylum too. I think I've got a copy, but don't know if I can easily put my hands on it.
