Full image caption

Pewter tankard inscribed "Fullwoods Rents". Engraved with the Irish Harp in the centre. National emblems such as the harp and the shamrock were used to decorate everyday objects used by the London Irish. This tankard is inscribed 'Fullwoods Rents', a small alley near Gray's Inn, Holborn, then inhabited mainly by Irish people. The concentration of Irish settled in rougher areas meant that the Irish poor were more visible in London than those who were domestic servants, artisans or professionals. The more prosperous Irish emigrated from Ireland to the US. Those who could not afford the fare to America travelled only as far as Britain.
