Burgh House Library (1935)

Photograph of Burgh House library, circa 1935.  Captain George and Elsie Bambridge lived at Burgh House between 1933 and 1937. Elsie Bambridge's father, the writer Rudyard Kipling, was a regular visitor.

According to an article in the Antique Collector from August 1937, the Bambridges had:

'... furnished the house sympathetically with antiques and done much to preserve its atmosphere of the past ... In the hands of its present occupants, it is a place where one can forget the hurly-burly of London ... and sense a respect for the craftsmanship, imagery and colour of a less shallow era than our own.'
