Effra Hall by the church in Brixton, was advertised as a home 'For the care & recovery of nervous, epileptic & insane ladies. The house, surrounded by its lawn, walled-in garden, meadow & orchard, has long been admitted to be one of the most beautiful and secluded residences in this well-known healthy locality. The additions & detached buildings have been erected on the most approved plans, so arranged with padded & other apartments, as to render mechanical restraint in the worst cases unnecessary, affording classification to the insane, quietude to the nervous, and to the epileptic, those accommodations which are so particularly required.'Postcard of engraving by T. H. Ellis. Ref: 12/64 p32a [SP16/188/EFF.H.1]
