The Marquis of Anglesey Featured Print

The Marquis of Anglesey

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquess of Anglesey Bt, (16 June 1875 14 March 1905), styled Lord Paget until 1880 and Earl of Uxbridge between 1880 and 1898, and nicknamed "Toppy", British peer, notable during his short life for squandering his inheritance on a lavish social life and accumulating massive debts. Regarded as the "black sheep" of the family, he was dubbed "the dancing marquess" for his habit of performing "sinuous, sexy, snake-like dances". He converted the chapel at the family's country seat of Plas Newydd, Anglesey, into a 150-seat theatre, named the Gaiety Theatre. Here he took the lead role, opulently costumed, in productions ranging from pantomime and comedy to performances of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband and Shakespeare's Henry V. For three years he took his company on tour around Britain and Europe. Date: 1904

Madame Bertha Trost Featured Print

Madame Bertha Trost

Madame Bertha Trost, an unusual figure in the undercurrents of London society, who went about dressed in Victorian clothes and riding in a carriage, deported as an undesirable during the First World War. Madame Trost, who had moved to London from Potsdam in about 1895, ran two shops - a beauty salon and an antiquarian shop - in Clifford Street and gave Bohemian parties in her house which was said to be furnished will all sorts of exotic curiosities, including a rosewood coffin she had made for her own demise. Many curious rumours had circulated around her name and, as it was said she was one of the most active spies in London, it was unsurprising that she was arrested and deported. Date: 1915
