Press Report relating
to the Bayswater Synagogue, London
10 October 1870
I think attention ought to be called to the absence of ventilation in the
ladies' gallery of the Bayswater Synagogue on the Day of Atonement. After a
feeble attempt on the part of an attendant to open a window failed, although it
was particularly requested by several of the congregation, the ladies were
doomed to inhale the atmosphere of the building, unrelieved by a single breath
of fresh air. Can an executive be aware of such barbarism? Especially after the
recent appeal from the Social Science Congress, for the freer admission of air
into buildings, etc. If they have not read the instructive paper on the subject,
I hope they will do so and prevent the same disadvantages from occurring again.
