With his face surgically disfigured into a permanent grin as punishment for his father's crimes, Gwynplaine makes his living as a freakshow performer. That is, until the fateful day he catches the eye of James II's successor, Queen Anne.

A dedicated team of volunteers have worked in conjunction with the archiving department of Glasgow University to digitise the scrapbooks of one of the great showmen of Glasgow's history and former owner of the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall, A. E. Pickard.
These scrapbooks are now available online for the whole world to view. So go on a take a look into the mind of one of the great characters of Music Hall history, and learn a little bit more about our beloved Britannia Panopticon at the same time.
You can find our Amazon store here.
