Composer: Reece, Robert
Music Hall songs tended to be about famous landmarks and attractions so that audiences would recognise them and it made them seem more realistic. This song sung by J. L. Toole, is about Madame Tussaud's the famous waxwork museum in London. Madame Tussaud's was popular with the Victorians as it provided them with a focal point for their fascination with the monarchy. Figures such as Queen Victoria were popular. It also provided a historical context, with figures of Napoleon, a history of the wars, as well as a gruesome chamber of horrors providing entertainment for those visiting.
