Looking for information about Alice Marian Rowland who married Ernest Hart and lived at Sydenham in London.
Would like to know more about her early life, background, education, her life after marriage etc. Alice Hart set up an industry to alleviate poverty in one of the poorest districts in Ireland and invested much of her own money in the project when others were reluctant to help. I am part of a small group of people who are considering the possibility of publishing a book concerning her endeavours in Ireland and any background information would be welcome.
“In 1888, Alice Hart established a Donegal Industrial Village at the Olympia exhibition in London. Gweedore lace workers and carpet weavers from Killybegs drew large crowds as they carried out demonstrations against a backdrop of traditional thatched cottages and high crosses. Other venues included Paris, Chicago and Philadelphia.”
