Eleanor Coade's London Online Talk

10th Sep, 2024
Online event

Mrs Coade is best known for her fired artificial stone, supplied from her manufactory in Lambeth and ubiquitous in Georgian England and far beyond. This talk will consider wider aspects of her life in London: the places she lived and also her activity in speculative development, both as financier and developer herself. Locating Coade in this wider context provides an interesting case study in the architectural activities of Georgian women, as well as in how a never-married woman like Coade successfully navigated the world of business, challenging our perceptions of female agency in the period.
