  • Crime related Photographs for Tussauds

    These were photographed by E J Poyser, the same man that photographed the death mask of Deeming and all applied for copyright to Tussaud's Marylebone.

      Thanks Debs, I have the article they were in. Great seeing the originals. Poyser took the one of Deeming he posted yesterday which was in the same article.

        There was another photographer called Winks who also too a lot of photographs at Tussaud in the early 1900s but most of them are group figures of politicians etc.

            Tussauds bought quite a lot of paraphernalia from the Pearcey house, see my Murder Houses of London. The Grafton St story is in Ripperologist 139. Does anybody know if the pram and trunk are still at Tussaud's?
