John Theodore Tussaud's Photographs

John Theodore Tussaud (1858 - 1943), Marie Tussaud’s great-grandson, was a keen photographer. Here are a few of his photographs from the archive.

About the images

  • As well as using his passion to assist in his work, taking photographic portraits of sitters and the finished wax portraits, John Theodore Tussaud also documented his personal home life by camera
  • The archive holds a collection of glass plate negatives of his early photographs, which were part of an archive digitisation project in 2015
  • • The below selection of photographs show the range of his work. They offer not only a behind the scenes look at the history of Madame Tussauds, but also a glimpse of turn-of-the-century family life
