Punch cartoonist and illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne moved into 18 Stafford Terrace with his wife Marion in 1874 and lived there up until his death in 1910. Today the remarkably well preserved interiors, tell the story of the lives and tastes of Linley, Marion and their two children, as well as providing a unique time capsule of a late 19th century middle-class aesthetic interior. This talk will explore the interiors of Sambourne House, the family that created them as well as the house’s journey to museum.
