Map of the Salvation Army in Hackney

William and Catherine Booth, the founders of the Salvation Army, moved to Hackney in 1865, and the area soon became a focus for their social and spiritual mission.

The red squares on the map represent a whole range of different services, from Clapton Congress Hall - which could seat 4,700 - to the smallest slum post, staffed by just two officers and a couple of volunteers. These services included refuges and rescue homes, homes for abused children, lodging houses for working women, laundries, knitting factories and district nursing posts, as well as the Mothers' Hospital itself.
