We’ve absolutely loved learning about Berlie Doherty’s bittersweet story of poor, young Jim Jarvis. We learnt that Jim’s mother was faced with every parents worst nightmare: having to lose their children. Jim and his two sisters were finding out whether their fate rested with the workhouse or working as servants. Here are our freeze frames that capture the emotions perfectly. Can you sense the poignancy too?
