View of Furnivals Inn, Holborn drawn by Thomas H. Shepherd, engraved by J. Henshall and published May 17th, 1828 by Jones and Co.  In 1834, when Charles Dickens was 22 years of age, his father John Dickens had been imprisoned for debt.  Charles Dickens, according to his biographer Edgar Johnson, took it upon himself to untangle his fatherís difficulties.  He found cheaper lodgings for his mother and younger children, and moved with his brother Frederick into chambers at Furnivals Inn, pictured here.
