Although better known as the first female pilot to fly across the Atlantic, Amelia Earhart was also a pioneering social worker. Before her flying career she worked at Denison House, a settlement in Boston, Massachusetts that was modelled on Toynbee Hall. This image shows her visiting Toynbee Hall after her flight, shaking hands with an elderly Henrietta Barnett and cheered on on by Boy Scouts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaO7fiO41wQ
