Postcard featuring an original photograph of the interior of the Caravan Club, Soho in 1934, held in The National Archives collection.
In 2017, the National Trust and The National Archives re-created The Caravan, ‘London’s most bohemian rendezvous’, a queer-friendly members club of 1934. The recreation took place at Freud Café-Bar – in almost the exact spot of The Caravan’s original location.
The 1930s was a time when being openly gay would frequently lead to prosecution and imprisonment; we sought to tell the important story of many similar clandestine LGBTQ+ spaces that were raided and closed by police.
Photographs, court reports, police papers and witness statements on The Caravan and other clubs of the era were used to re-create the striking bohemian interior of the underground club.
Selected from The National Archives’ extensive collection, these documents reveal great detail and insights into club culture and the everyday prejudices facing the homosexual community at the time.
