Join The Club

There may not have been FaceBook or LinkedIn in the 1800's, but a Men's Club was a place to meet like minded people and to network when looking for work, or wanting to get ahead in life. 

Junior Carleton Club, London 1868

Most clubs had quarters for living or just staying in the city a night or two. There would have been a dining room, probably a game room. A young well-to-do man when deemed too old to live at home, may live at the club before he is married.

There were Gentlemen's clubs and Workingmen's clubs.

Did your ancestor belong to a club?
