Hammersmith Socialists

Group  From 1891  To 1897

Political group. William Morris had belonged to H.M. Hyndman's Socialist League, but when its views became too extreme for him, he founded the Hammersmith Socialist Society which met at his home, Kelmscott House, Hammersmith. It served as a forum for Sunday evening lectures and discussions on political and social issues. Its prominent members and speakers included Gustav Holst, G.B.ShawW.B.Yeats, Burne-Jones, W. H. Hooper, Emery Walker and Cobden-Sanderson. In the photograph, Morris is the heavily bearded chap standing to the right of the banner.
