Madame Tussaud's Exhibition of Waxworks is one of the sights of London, especially dear to country cousins; and the spacious building in the Marylebone Road, near Baker Street Station, is visited by many thousands of both old and young folk annually. Our view shows a royal group in the Main Hall. The effigies beginning on the right, are those of their Royal Highnesses Princess Henry of Battenberg, the Duchess of Saxe-Coburg, the Duchess of Teck, the Duchess of York, the Princess and Prince of Wales, their daughter the Duchess of Fife, the Duchess of Albany, and Princess Christian. Against the walls may be distinguished Shakespeare, in a familiar posture, Sir Walter Scott (in the corner), the Queen of Tragedy - Mrs. Siddons - Macready in Roman costume, and, sitting in a chair, the late Sir Moses Montefiore
