From Ye Parish of Camberwell by W H Blanch, published in 1877.
"The Camberwell Provident Dispensary,of which R.A Gray,Esq., J.P., is President,was established in 1862for the purpose of assisting the poor within radius of one and three quarters miles of St.Giles Church,and at the same time encouraging habits of forethought and independence.
The members,whose earnings must not exceed 30 shillings a week,pay a small sum from 2d,to 8p monthly, and receive doring illness medical
attendance and medicine. There are more than six thousand members and much as 600 pound im monthly pence was received by the dispensary during 1873,whilst about 7,000 visits are annually made to the poor at their own homes and about 14,000 consultations are held annually at the dispensary.
During 1873,156 married women were attended in their confinement and about 320 operations performed by dentist Mr Thomas of Denmark Hill."

I have been reading some articles about the number of pubs that are closing in the UK. The numbers are staggering including one every two days. Some magnificent Victorian buildings are lost to demolition not to mention the history of the pub and its people.

The Athenaeum was situated at 334 Camberwell New Road. This pub closed in 1996 and is now in retail use
