A Christmas Carol

Introduction
This is painted by another Carol (Whaley) ! In 1843 when Dickens wrote this story, Christmas traditions such as carol singing were being revived. He helped restore a sombre holiday to a family festival. The theme of employers’ duty to workers was based on child labour, including Dickens’ own experience of it.

 Built circa 1795, the Dickens Fellowship rescued 48 Doughty Street WC1 in 1923 as Charles’ only surviving London home. It likely had carol singers in Dickens’ time. The ceramic was launched here in 2003 with the late Cedric Charles Dickens, great grandson.

A Christmas Carol
“What is the matter?’ asked the Spirit. “Nothing”, said Scrooge. “Nothing. There was a boy singing a Christmas carol at my door last night. I should like to have given him something: that’s all.” In this short extract from the novella, the Ghost of Christmas Past has already worked a little magic on Ebenezer. That is in contrast to the left picture where he is yet unreformed. Seen leaving Scrooge & Marley’s office, he ignores the children carol singing in the snow.
