This mosaic on the side of St Jude's Church, Whitechapel, is a mosaic copy of GF Watts "Time, Death and Judgement", executed by Salviati. It was given to the Barnett's as a gift from their friends and was placed on the side of the Church, but following its destruction has since moved to St Giles-in-the-Fields Church in the West End.

These photos represent Henrietta and Samuel Barnett's time in Whitechapel where he was the vicar of St Jude's. Without their experiences of the harsh poverty in the area they may not have been inspired to create the Hampstead Garden Suburb to help alleviate such cramped and poor conditions.
