Culpitt’s Doll’s House

Culpitt’s Doll’s House

Frederick Culpitt opened the doors of the doll’s house and removed some furniture, showing that the doll’s house was now empty. As Culpitt removed the chimney pot, the roof opened and a lady was found inside, his wife Jan Glenrose. The performance photograph is from a Maskelyne programme.
