Raine's House - charity boy

Site: Raine Charity School (2 memorials)

E1, Raine Street, Raine's House

The motto above the door reads ‘Come in and learn your duty to God and man’. The scholar statues on the front are copies. The originals were taken by the school when it moved to Bethnal Green, in 1880 or 1885 (it's not clear).
