There’s a lot to be said for old buildings and the history they often bear. “If these walls could talk,” has become a common saying, but when one stops to think about it, it can make for a fascinating stimulus where the imagination is concerned.
I can clearly remember a sense of wonder about my grandparents’ home when I was younger. The house had been built in the 18th century and had passed from owner to owner many times down the years.
I used to wonder what sort of people had called it home during, say, the 1800s, and even what the land might have looked like before it had been deemed ideal ground for building on in the way back when.
