The Salon Digest

After a fine weekend  let's take a look at the week just gone!

Dr Adam Smith is your guide to a new film regarding the influence of the coffeehouse, and reminisces of an event in celebration of that fine institution.

My review of a wonderful exhibition from the Wallace Collection.

Mariana Gabrielle discusses the unhappy fate of the Indian Tawaif, courtesans to nobility.

Dr Julie Peakman stops by the salon to lift the lid on a brothel-keeper who grew rich on her memoirs.
