The Londinian

From the Papers of Sir Fred Clarke, 1947. Temporary reference FC179

This publication started as the magazine of the London Day Training College and was continued when it became the Institute of Education. In the archive we hold copies dotted across various collections, dating from 1925-1957.

This particular issue contains articles on The Union Society, Karl Mannheim, the state of post war music, and a rather strange story about a woman who bought a “hairless Mexican” dog, that turned out to be a rat with ears sewn on, bizarre!

However, really I thought it deserved a blog post for the fantastic woodblock print cover. With it’s imagery of a globe projected from the heart of a building (presumably the Institute building at the time), and Senate House visible in the background, the image certainly communicates about the the ambitions of the Institute at that time..
