Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne lived in this house with his family in the late nineteenth century. It’s the very epitome of genteel, well-heeled Victorian middle-class living (ironic, given that Sambourne also took some pretty explicit nekkid photographs of pretty ladeez). Curiously, it’s the humdrum stuff here that’s really fascinating: things like Sambourne’s bills and correspondence.
