The early Annual Reports of the Anglo Jewish Association contain a snapshot of the more established, middle and lower middle classes of the Anglo Jewish community, because they list the members with their names and addresses and the amount of their annual subscription.
I have previously written about my copy of the Anglo-Jewish Association Annual Report for 1879-1880, on the eve of the great Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe to England.
This report lists the established Jews of England at the time of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. At this time, the principal philanthropic work of the Anglo Jewish Association is the support of educational and social institutions in Eastern countries, and the report includes appendices giving details of this support for industrial instruction in Bagdad, Jewish Education in Constantinople, and the Jewish community in Smyrna.
I have included scans of the pages of lists of the (mainly London) members, and I will eventually scan and post the lists of provincial and foreign members.
