Once grand

By jacomes
A room in the abandoned "manor house" in My daughter's village in Portugal.
The house was built in 1916 by Joaquim Nunes dos Santos who established the Portuguese equivalent of Harrods in Lisbon and became extremely rich as a result. It was the family holiday home. It is now falling apart (and is for sale at 280,000euros!)
V1 is in B&W and V2 is an external view of the house.

Thank you to lookers, voters and commenters on Cheeky chappy yesterday and especially to Isabel (Chinga) for her award.

A lick of paint and it'll look like new! 😃 Shame to see houses look like this, but makes for great photography 👍
