The Parlour

A rare chance to see the inside of Comrade Trim's fine Suffolkshire retreat. In the evenings he entertains his guests with some fine renditions of old Suffokshire songs like "I voted Brexit for a fast exit" and "Jeremy is my darlin'"

Ce décor est très chargé.
Bill Phillips: Typically Victorian. The rooms were often overfurnished to show off what they had
This feels like a very old postcard!
Bill Phillips: A bit like Comrade Trim himself
i like the treatment in the image. and the carvings are rather elaborate on the cabinet and the clock, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The furniture is delightfully elaborate

And notice the lovely portraits of his ancestors on the wall. He keeps his cameras in the cupboard on the left
Bill Phillips: Would that he kept them there all the time
I think it must all be a figment of his imagination, Bill??? smile
Bill Phillips: He is a figment of his imagination Ginnie

What for a cosy room, just fitting to indulge in our past. I wish the four stooges a lovely day together.
Bill Phillips: I hope it will be Philine.
Where did you find this very old photograph Bill? Fine entertainment in the video.
Bill Phillips: This is actually a room set in the museum in Aberystwyth Chad. Now you know and the illusion has been shattered for everyone else.
Thank you for making us travel in the past for over a century Bill!
Bill Phillips: The crowded cosiness of a Victorian parlour Richard

Now that cupboard on the left is something, Bill
Bill Phillips: I believe that is what is known as a court cupboard Lisl
He must spend his days dusting.
Bill Phillips: He is always at it Mary
Two cats ran from the room when the video started. The fellow in the white sweater was doing all he could to stay awake. Fun times.
Bill Phillips: Smart cats!

I think Trimmy bought these furnishings new, when he turned 21 ...

Your photographic rendering of these antiques is a job well done.
Bill Phillips: Yes he is old enough to have bought them new
Very impressive carved Victorian furniture isn't it, the clock and cupboard almost match each other.
Bill Phillips: They certainly go well together Brian
I like the processing, and the song titles...

Has he had the electric power installed yet, Bill?
Bill Phillips: No, we really have to rough it when we stay there
