Photo-a-Day (Monday, 6th April, 2020)

They should have an old car on the drive as well, like old fashioned Irene.
"So you finally named the day...."
It is an old car.
Good stuff, thanks for sharing.
She's not old fashioned Mick, she's probably as modern thinking as you are. She just happens to like the styles and fashions of yesteryear. One thing she doesn't do is go around attacking and being critical of people on here for expressing their opinions !!
I would change the jag for a Bentley brian
Thats not attacking anybody Stan, just by saying the photo would look better with a old fashion car like Irene has, that in your words is just me expressing my own opinion
I watch a lot of the 'old' films from the 40's and 50's and believe me the clothes the fashionable women wore then were absolutely beautiful... Far nicer than today's 'fashions' - downright scruffy some of it..
The car is from 1972/73, so it is
Got it Poet, Got it … Manfred Mann.
Now now, Gentlemen, I'm not worth fighting over, (oh, I don't know, though!!!).(Only joking!). I'm sure Mick didn't mean anything derogatory at all with his comment but thankyou so much Standisher for your defence on my behalf. I said I wasn't commenting on p-a-d again but as soon as I saw The 1940s House I was itching to comment! It's a beautiful house and Our Dorothy, (the Hillman Minx), would look right there, even if she IS 1959. Like Veronica, I DO love the forties styles and fashions, be it houses, clothes, hairstyles or music.....my hair will be long enough to wear in a Victory Roll before the hair salons re-open! The house and garage remind me of Housewife 49, and the daffodils in the garden are a cheering sight. Thankyou Brian for a lovely photo-a-day.
Hope the hubby in that house isn't like Housewife 49's Irene ...the poor woman had no peace with him! I think I would have poisoned him....;o(
Irene Ive just rode past this house and noticed a van parked outside with The Home Front written on it, so ity looks like this couple have a old fashioned decorating business
Mick, They also have a vintage shop The Source Pot where they sell clothes and furniture, it's on Dicconson Terrace where the hairdressers was.
No offence intended, like, but it's a 1920s house which looks as if it was tarted up by the addition of a porch and garage in the 1960s. Somewhere along the way the stained glass features in the top windows of the bay have been got rid off - as well as the terracotta tops to the gateposts to match the existing on the left.
A few visits to architectural salvage yards are called for for full authenticity
A Rover 90 would fit better than the flashy Jag, as well....
Brian thank you very much for this post, the video is fantastic ,
How do you view the video, please?
You need to copy and paste the link below into your browser:
You are correct, its a 1925 house.
The couple that bought it transformed it to reflect life in the 1940s. See the video for explanation and views inside. Fascinating stuff.
Brian, what is the browser please? I have just recently learned how to copy and paste on facebook but not anywhere else. When I've copied the link where do I go then? Please don't worry if it's difficult to explain, but I don't know what the browser is!
Irene upgrade to new 2020 calendar
Turn the page to April and todays date the 7th and get modern.
Thankyou Mick but I don't know how to do that either.
Irene , I have always wondered what the 'browser' is. I though it was something to do with 'window shopping' on the Internet for new clothes and such!!! ;o))
Ps I do know how to 'copy and paste ' and 'save' pictures in emails but wouldn't know where to put the above info... You are not on your own!
I DID IT!! Whoo-hoooo!! Brilliant video. I love their kitchen but I think they would like my scales!
Irene and Veronica, the browser bar is at the top of your screen, also known as the search bar. If you look it reads: wiganworld.co.uk/photoaday.php?photo=2020-04-06
Thankyou Cyril. I managed to copy the link and just pasted it into Google and was able to watch the video, (It was guesswork and more luck than management but it worked somehow!). Thanks for the info on the browser....I hadn't a clue!
Thanks Cyril, I did it... The chap looks like he's from the 40's but the lady looks more 60's vintage to me. I think the house is a bit of a mix... I admire their enthusiasm.
