about 1911

This photograph shows an interior in a middle-class British home in around 1911. Although the photograph was taken after 1910, the room shows many late Victorian features. The walls are covered with pictures and decorative plates, and the fireplace has a mantleboard drapery. MoDA holds in it's collection the same type of wallpaper (SW1378) and frieze (SW124) visible in this image.
