THE VV AS A MAID AT THAT MR LINLEY SAMBOURNE'S HOUSE



The Virtual Victorian has been a little subdued of late. All of that chasing George Leybourne around the Aquarium and Zoological Gardens, not to mention the constant supply of the best vintage Moet and Chandon Champagne, has brought on something of an attack of the vapours.

But, fizzing with the efficacious cure of Dr Robert's Constitutional Powders, her spirits are rapidly rising and she's been persuaded to let you peek at this very rare photograph where, if you look closely, you may see Essie Fox when she first began her Adventures in London - engaged at the time as a parlour maid in that racy Mr Linley Sambourne's house, exposed for all the world to see on the front cover of the Telegraph Sunday Magazine.
