Mitten on a Railing – The Foundling Museum

There’s a mitten on a railing near the children’s playground at Coram Fields. A common enough sight. Go closer though and you will find it is made of painted bronze. What does it mean?

Peter Hayes of the Camden Tour Guides Association brings you a story of abandoned babies, accidental art galleries, and a ground-breaking charitable institution that continues to thrive hundreds of years later. Peter Hayes tells the story of the Foundling Museum with contributions from Caro Howell of the Foundling Museum and Carol Harris of Coram (produced  by Freddy Chick) – 13’ 50” (© Peter Hayes, Freddy Chick, CCRadio)
