Bet that title caught your attention, eh?!
Research is a wonderful thing, yes really – honest! The only trouble is I always push myself too far and end up with eye strain and or a headache from poring over old text, photos and/or plans. Victorian handwriting can be as bad as translating hieroglyphics sometimes.
I would never give it up though, you’d have to restrain me somewhere and take my toys away! Now, who wants to help me with the 1891 London census, art archives, sale room/auction archives, Raeburn, maps and plans…
