Mrs Salmon’s Waxwork

Scanned directly from ‘Old and New London – Its History, its people and its places’, published by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co. 1878.

Illustration of Mrs Salmon’s Waxwork, Fleet Street, London – “Palace of Henry VIII and Cardinal Wolsey”. This is where Mrs. Salmon (the Madame Tussaud of early times) exhibited her waxwork Kings and Queens. There was a figure on crutches at the door, and Old Mother Shipton, the witch, kicked the astonished visitor as he left. Mrs. Salmon died in 1812.
