Abstract

Drawing upon the manuscript diaries of Emily and Ellen Hall, this essay considers the problematic relationship the sisters had with their increasingly prolific architect Richard Norman Shaw in the late 1860s. The chapter uses the diaries to uncover the ways in which the sisters and their architect contested the space and design of the 'new room' and the changing roles of architect and patron in the later nineteenth century.
