Henry, it reminded me of my Nana's house in Bottling Wood. Very evocative photo.

Agreed, Henry 7; very atmospheric.....almost as if it is waiting to come back to life.

very reminiscent of the front / living room at my grandmother's in Logwood avenue. I lived there for the first 2 years of my life in the early 60's. Thank you for the memory.
