Lady Reid Lecture-Franklin and Interiors

Franklin provides a description of 36 Craven Street's interiors

Franklin provides a description of 36 Craven Street's interiors in the Craven Street Gazette, his amusing tale of life with his surrogate London family that included landlady Margaret Stevenson, daughter Polly and Polly’s husband, surgeon William Hewson. Franklin made a mark on spaces in the Georgian terrace house, including by installing a prototype Franklin Stove, which remains. From 1764, he began instructing his wife in letters on building a house on Philadelphia's Market Street, influenced by his observations in England.
