Discover how ideas about personal hygiene have evolved through records and artifacts left behind by the Peter family during their 200-year ownership of Tudor Place. Join Tudor Place’s new curator, Rob DeHart in a rousing display and interactive talk on “Sanitary Solutions: Hygiene in the Peter Household”. Artifacts that will be examined include a rare “self-activating portable water closet,” centuries-old toothbrushes and soap, and the “modern” bathroom fixtures purchased by the Peters in 1914.
Tudor Nights is an exclusive opportunity to see rarely displayed objects and ephemera from the Tudor Place Collection & Archive.
