Yes Bezzymate, you are quite right. Pure quality from top to bottom. The wrought iron railings and gate. The timberwork above the bedroom windows. The terracotta (?) work under the gutters.

One wonders what an equivalent house would cost to build now. That is of course assuming there are any tradesmen left who can produce such work !

Notice the 2 delivery carts in the background between the building and the post, at first i thought they were prams, but i don't think they had two wheel prams, Baby would go flying out of the front if the handle was let go.

Well spotted, Bert. A shop that size would probably have had at least two delivery boys.
