A place to discuss floaty pens

Freudian slip

A visit to Freud's London residence in Hampstead revealed a cache of floaty pens.

Sigmund Freud only lived in London for one year before his death, but his daughter Anna lived on afterwards in the house at 20 Maresfield Gardens.

Freud's famous couch is on show and the chair he sat on out of view of his patients.

This is the exterior of the house.

I would have loved to buy some Freudian slippers from the gift shop.

There were some interactive displays in the house. On this table were a lot of pencils that needed sharpening.

One of the interactive assignments was to try and guess what Freud would have said about some of the work of artists on show in the house.
