Soho House – and some very early central heating

A quick word to say that if you were interested in the last post about lighting you might like to see more of the house where I photographed two of the lamps – Soho House in Birmingham. It was the home of pioneer industrialist Matthew Boulton, a meeting place of the famous Lunar Men and the location of what may well be the first hot air central heating system since the Romans! More about it, plus some pictures at http://historicalromanceuk.blogspot.co.uk/

  1. Fascinating post, Louise, especially the central heating! How simple and how clever. Probably very efficient, I imagine, if you think about hot air electric heaters we use.
