Wednesday November 28, 1894
Meeting of Blue Coat Trustees at 5.30
William Christie, Astronomer Royal
RH says..... The Blue Coat charity was founded to provide schooling to poor children, who would wear the eponymous blue coats to school. The meeting that Christie attended probably related to the Greenwich Blue Coat School, now incorporated into the Blackheath Bluecoat School.
