Re: Re: Nicholas Street
I’m 95% certain that these two views are actually of the same streetscape, but from opposite directions.
I thought the same at first, since the houses B, C, D, E, and F matched perfectly.
But Wilkinson’s houses G, H, I and J had each an extra window bay, so I dismissed any possible connection.
However the fact that the houses G, H, I and J were scaled down in size, they were more than likely as you say re-fronted with one window bay less.
Gunter, your 95% hunch is convincing.
Hmmm . . . . that would have been a nice one for the panel to solve at last night’s gathering.
