The Victorians liked to deal with symptoms, not causes, and there was certainly a boom in philanthropy. He was soon running a whole raft of institutions, including a mission church and "coffee palace" in what had previously been a pub for working-men, a "receiving house" for girls, and the Girls' Village Home in Barkingside, Essex, which included a church and schools.

    In total, he was taken to court on 88 occasions, usually on the charge of kidnapping. It seems to have been equal parts expediency—trying to keep up with the relentless flood of human misery coming through orphanage doors—and profiteering. A terrific adventure story, heart-warmingly poignant and a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. The book also considers how Barnardo's conception of charity is closely aligned with principles of unconditional hospitality, precisely at a moment when the English were intent on centralizing philanthropy and on meting out support according to measures Barnardo regarded as punitive and unchristian.

    When these premises proved inadequate, he opened his Copperfield Road Free School in canal-side warehousing the current Ragged School Museumwhich was also used as a club and institute for factory girls, serving the latter purpose for some years even after the the school itself was closed in see "Nos 46 and 48". Barnardo to some extent illustrates this point. He could also irritate people to the point that they became virtual enemies, he battled in court with opponents quite unnecessarily, he was economical with the truth on occasions the title Doctor being somewhat questionablehe lost his personal credibility with many influential people who supported his good works, and some of his enterprises were shaky. Poverty and disease were so widespread that one in five children died before their fifth birthday. In the unconscious lurks our shadow side—the part of human nature that starts wars, steals food from the mouths of children, or beats a wife.
