I love the large photo you have added as the blog header Frieda. All this documenting seems like a very good idea. Good for you, good for whomever is interested, good for historians - just plain good! ; 0) lenna

I now live at tantah lodge and these little gems make all the difference, knowing some of the history of the house. Many thanks!
