'Mrs. Thrale's House, Streatham', (c1878). The Georgian country mansion at Streatham Park in the village of Streatham was built by the brewer Ralph Thrale. It later passed to his son Henry Thrale, who with his wife Hester entertained many of the leading literary and artistic characters of the day, notably the lexicographer Samuel Johnson who had his own room above the library. Hester's diaries and correspondence are an important source of information about Johnson and 18th-century English life. The house has since been demolished, and the area is now part of greater London. From Old and New London: A Narrative of Its History, Its People, And Its Places. The Southern Suburbs, Volume VI, by Edward Walford. [Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., London, Paris & New York, c1878]
