TAKING THE PLEDGE: Women in Pawnbroking 1850-1922 with Antonia Hart

1 October, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

SORRY – BOOKED OUT 

Pawnbroking was a valuable and regulated financial services industry in Ireland in the second half of the nineteenth century. For those who couldn’t easily borrow money elsewhere, it provided an important route to credit with few, if any, questions asked. This talk examines the activities of Irish women on both sides of the pawnbroker’s counter.
