In 1870 Engels quit his job as a Manchester mill-owner and moved into this house which Jenny Marx had found for him. It was just a 10 minute walk from Karl and Jenny's place in Chalk Farm, to where they had recently moved from Kentish Town. Marx and Engels spent four decades walking and talking their way around North London. Engels was known as the Grand Lama of the Regent's Park Road.
