CHRISTMAS cheer probably isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when you think about the Victorian workhouse. Poverty and hardship, yes. Poor orphan boys, probably. Quite likely Oliver Twist asking plaintively ‘please, Sir, can I have some more?’ But Christmas? Well, we know that York workhouse tried to get in the Christmas spirit at least once in the early years of the 1900s. Because we have a picture to prove it. The photograph was brought in by reader Philippa Plitt. Philippa’s grandmother Sarah Ellen Ward was a young woman who had come to York from Derbyshire in the 1880s as a teenager to train as a nurse. She then got a job at the York workhouse in Huntington Road – and Philippa’s photo shows her standing front right, in her stiff nurse’s uniform, holding a little boy by the shoulders while posing for a photograph. There are a couple of other nurses or matrons in the picture, plus a second boy. And a genuine effort has been made to cheer up the workhouse’s stark dining room, with Christmas decorations and sprigs of what may be holly or yew hanging from the ceiling. True, the little boy standing with Philippa’s grandmother doesn’t look all that cheerful. But full marks to the workhouse staff for at least trying... Since Christmas is almost upon us again, we thought this would be a good time to bring you a few more photos of Christmases past in York. Perhaps the best story dates to Christmas 1944. A French air mechanic based at RAF Elvington, Sous Lieutenant Lemarchand, had happened to see a charity Christmas tree at York railway station. It gave him an idea: he and other French mechanics from Elvington would make toys for sick children in York.
