Residential accommodation at The Chalfont Centre
The Chalfont Centre is a colony run by the National Society for Epilepsy. Their website Link
tells us: "The National Society for the Employment of Epileptics (NSEE) was launched in 1892 by a group of London philanthropists and medical men. The aim of the Society was to establish a 'colony' for people with epilepsy who were capable of work but couldn't find employment due to their condition and the prevailing social attitudes of the time. At that time, many people with epilepsy were confined to workhouses or asylums due to difficulties in finding work and lodgings." The photographer has successfully used their service for hardcover binding of a small number of books.
