Surbiton, Home of Esoteric Freemasonry

by totalgooched

Based at a building called Hexagon House, in Surbiton, South West London, The British Federation of Le Droit Humain is a speculative form of Masonry, who practise esoteric freemasonry. They describe their model as ‘introspective and intellectual’.

It was founded in 1902 by Theosophist Annie Besant, the first of its kind outside of France, thus making Le Droit Humain an international order. She then went on to establish other lodges throughout the British Empire.

Ophelia on the Hogsmill River, Tolworth

by totalgooched

‘John Everett Millais’ Ophelia, oil on canvas, was painted in 1851 when he was just 22. The painting depicts the drowning of Shakespeare’s Ophelia who is the daughter or Polonius, sister of Laertes and a potential wife of Hamlet.  As a young, tragic beauty, Ophelia has long been a popular subject of artists but it is Millais’ work which has become the iconic image of Ophelia we know so well.’
