The former residence in Cheyne Row, Chelsea, of Thomas Carlyle (1795 – 1881), Scottish satirical writer, essayist, historian and teacher during the Victorian era. He called economics 'the dismal science', wrote articles for the Edinburgh Encyclopaedia, and became a controversial social commentator. The site is now a National Trust property commemorating his life and works. Possibly by William Walter Burgess (1844 - 1908), who annually exhibited his etchings at the Royal Academy from 1874 to 1903. Burgess was a full member of the Royal Engravers and such major museums as The British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, include his etchings in their permanent collections.
