Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Country House Life: A Century of Change in Britain's Country Homes - Elizabeth Drury, Francesca Scoones This one is all photographs, with captions saying who the person was, and the date, and often with a description. I could have wished for more narrative, but the wealth of images here makes it worth it in the long run. Most charming are the photos of children, often with their pets. Not for everyone, but those interested in Downton Abbey might find it of interest for the generations before the time of Robert and Cora. Four stars overall, and recommended.
