Bonfire of History
On the evening of 18th March 1925, a devastating fire ripped through the Marylebone premises of Madame Tussaud’s. By the time the fire was extinguished the following morning, little was left of the world-famous waxworks beyond a few grotesquely distorted models and a pile of scrap iron, which was the remnants of one of Napoléon’s carriages.
With unique access to archives and contemporary records, the authors expose some major discrepancies relating to Madame Tussaud herself and the authenticity of her collection.
