If that 3-owner house has not been on the market for 66 years, the current owner must have inherited it from the second owner, because he's younger than I am.

There is a beautiful wisteria vine on the house which should be in bloom about now, although it appears to have been cut back severely.

It's good to see some Gill up close, and have a tutorial on the history as well.

That trellis will need new wood, one day. Great to see this house so intact.

Can anybody say what the device with the bell and the numbered arrows is ? A servant's call box ? Can anybody identify the art ?
