Thanks so much, Steve. And how fascinating to see that link!! I had been thinking earlier about when there would be sunshine on this side as it's north-facing. Later afternoon in mid-summer is pretty much the only time :)

Linda, I prefer the first for the raw character and stubborn quality of old buildings. They seem to defy time, drooping slowly sometimes, slipping swiftly some others, but maintaining a proud dignity I associate with those days. Nicely done. Matt

so strange, all I can imagine is the big tub on the other side of the window with a saloon girl taking her bath. You have found a hiding hole that escapes time.
