|The mandatory plaque|
They show the value of something that can be close to an obsession for their founders.
This week after part 5 of the CityLit Intro to Tate Modern (more on that later) I managed to find myself (by accident) at Dr Johnson's House Museum - the giant of the literary world's former home.
[Very nice Museum staff - I was able to take advantage of National Trust entry fee discount but not the age one!]
|So this is a whatnot|
|A piece of history|
The house has many curios (so that's a whatnot) as well as quite a library - during the Second World War it was used by the Fire service and photo's show the firemen in residence.
|A window in the house showing Johnson|
|A portrait of possibly former slave Barber.|
Barber became a teacher and settled and worked in the Midlands near Johnson's old home and was a school teacher.
|Not far from £80 now (£79.64)|
Moving forward with the doors..
|Another tree, another door|
|This must be the jobbing builder's default door|
