a wonderful, elegant photo (we know the phrase 'cold coffee' in German) - in view there is a warm, cosy atmosphere in this NT manor house.
Bill Phillips: The cold tea is in the decanter pretending to be whisky.

Hhah... yes, I do recall that trick to make it look like whisky, etc. Another shot from your home? Do you have a butler?
Bill Phillips: Naturally
See nothing has changed then, you need to get out in day light.
Bill Phillips: What, and run the risk of bumping into you?
Great shot and treatment Bill!
Bill Phillips: I'm obliged to you sir

There is no way they would use the rel thing. Yea works fine visually.
Bill Phillips: It would be embarrassing if a child got hold of it and took a large swig if it was Mary

They used hang labels around decanters with the word 'nig' on it to fool the servants
Bill Phillips: Oh I bet they all fell for that
I love the effects here Bill
Bill Phillips: I'm delighted you do Ronky
This is rather nice Bill, another example of good use of B.& W.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. Pleased you like it
Very rich setting, Bill; a standout in B&W. Is the dangling cord used to fetch the servants?
Bill Phillips: Probably Beverly
Someones telling porkies smile
Bill Phillips: No honest guv! This is in a National Trust decanter has whisky in it!
No wonder his lordship is looking down. Nice treatment
Bill Phillips: Spinning in his grave probably!
Great reflections in all the glasswork...
Bill Phillips: Cheers Larry smile
If you say so, I trust you Bill!
