Mitten on a Railing

There’s a mitten on a railing near the children’s playground at Coram Fields. A common enough sight. Go closer though and you will find it is made of painted bronze. What does it mean?
Peter Hayes of the Camden Tour Guides Association brings you a story of abandoned babies, accidental art galleries, and a ground-breaking charitable institution that continues to thrive hundreds of years later.
Special thanks to Caro Howell at the Foundling Museum and to Carol Harris at Coram.
