Sitter in 5 portraits
Born and raised in Dublin, Barnardo was waiting in London to travel to China as a missionary when he enrolled at the London Hospital to train as a doctor, and taught at a Ragged school. He later set up his own school, which inspired him towards what was to be his life's work. Barnardo was known as the 'child's champion', and approximately 60,000 girls and boys had benefited from his work by the end of his life.
