since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
Love the Staples painting . . . I regognise the window and carpet and I think the piece of furniture in the forground. The scene is at Lissan House near Cookstown, Co. Tyrone. Lissan House featured in the BBC 'Restoration' series in 2003 - coming runner-up to the Manchester Baths in the UK final.Would love a print of the picture . . do you know anything of the characters portrayed therein ? I think Ponsy may have been recording an imaginary event involving his mother, father and acertain Miss Potter. Wonderful !
That's most interesting - thanks. I have wondered about the background but nothing has come my way unfortunately.
