So we left the costume portion of the museum, which was sort of a fun adventure (getting there too) because of it being an old building, the wheelchair could only go a specific way, which was like through their storage area.
To the Assembly Rooms!
I’m trying to collect my thoughts about this, BUT I CAN’T.
Jane Austen walked in this room
Also Dickens apparently, which is also very neat.
One of my favourite Austen novels had huge scenes here!
I tried reeeeeeally hard to be calm and composed, but basically it was a major fannish moment. For E too, you can see.
My gramma just thought we were nuts (the depth of her Not Understanding, will be made clear in the next post).
It’s all so prettyyyyyy
Now I want a fancy chandelier.
Then they had a little museum-y area, with this fancy sedan chair from the late 18th century.
Must have been nice to be So Rich!
A “Bath Chair,” I’m not sure if it’s the precursor to the wheelchair or developed independently.
Another sedan chair, this one a for hire version, as opposed to the fancy personal one previous.
Then we left there and journeyed to our next destination~
Everything is so quaint looking, except for E 8D
This made me want a garden door, just to paint brightly.
This is someone’s house, with milk bottles. I didn’t even know there were places that still did that!
Two more parts to this day~ coming soon!
