Georgian Bath was a centre for music as well as medicine. Harrington was keenly interested in music, and founded the Bath Harmonic Society. He served on Bath’s city council for several years, and became Mayor in 1793. This portrait has hung in the Guildhall’s Council Chamber for many years, in recognition of Harrington’s contribution to public life.
