Bleak House, Broadstairs 1910s r - A haunt of Charles Dickens.

Believed to be the inspiration for Charles Dickens novel 'Bleak House'. Built 1801 with 1901 additions. This was Dickens holiday home, and he wrote David Copperfield here.

Glass stereo slides of England, taken by my g-grandfather during trips to England and Europe, with the family, 1907 -1922, using the Richard Verascope stereo camera. The slides,with overall dimensions of 44mm x 107mm ( 1 ¾” x 4 ¼”), contain two small positive transparency images, with a lateral displacement of 63mm (2 ½”) to match average human interpupillary distance. The individual images are approx 38 x 38 mm (1 ½” square), giving a reasonable medium-resolution image.

The images are normally viewed with the cleverly-designed Richard Taxiphote cabinet stereo viewer.

 

The house was recently up for sale: See: www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2007820/Charles-Dickenss...
