    This is almost a very mystical photograph…no legs! A person floating and wanting to be let out! There is something very nostalgic, relating to the early 1800’s when people were placed in unsightly institutions like The Magdalene Institution The original Glasgow Magdalene Asylum was set up in 1812 in response to increasing worries regarding prostitution, venereal diseases and the moral health of the country. The powers that be thought the obvious way to combat these ills was to incarcerate women, not in a punitive institution but in a ‘voluntary’ institution such as the Magdalene Asylum. As the biblical reference in the name suggests the institute was based on the premise that these women could be redeemed and ‘saved’ from their life of immorality and possible early death. The women in the asylum were generally termed as prostitutes; however, it should be noted that this term was used in a very loose manner encompassing not only women who sold sex for money but also single mothers, socialists, mill girls and girls dressed ‘immorally’. Why this has come up I don’t know…but there is something about this photograph! Amazing work! Well done!Sx
