Madam Clapham

- Speaker Rob Bell


 15 Whitefriargate, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU1 2ER


This talk, given by Rob Bell, explores the context of women in society from around the 1880's through to when Madam Clapham's Saloon closed in 1967


The Salon , located in what is now the Kingston Theatre Hotel, with up to 200 seamstresses in its pomp, served the establishment with gowns of distinction - matching the style and cachet of London and Paris. Princess Maude of Norway, daughter of Queen Victoria was a client.


This talk is evolving all the time with more information on the working life of seamstresses and other salons across Hull at that time.
