This image shows a group of Toynbee Hall residents circa 1903-5 on the steps of the Lecture Hall. In the middle sits Samuel Barnett, William Beverage on the right and beside him stands R.H Tawney. A friend of William Beverage, Tawney became an influential economic historian and social critic as well as life long supporter of adult education. Tawney was involved in a number of projects whilst at Toynbee Hall, but probably most significant was his role in the Workers Education Association.
