Tudor House Museum 2

By pamelajean
(Continuing my Southampton series with another picture of Tudor House. Most of the pictures in this series are taken from “the old town”).

By the end of the 19th century the area around Tudor House had become one of the city's worst slum areas, with limited running water, disease-ridden properties, and malnourished tenants.
Because of this the area, including Tudor House, was scheduled for demolition.

In 1886, when the house was threatened with demolition, local philanthropist William Spranger bought the house, recognising its significance as a site of historic importance. Extensive and meticulous restoration work took nearly 5 years between 1898 and 1902.

I appreciate your interest and response to my previous shot of this museum.

Pamela.

These old Tudor buildings must be saved and thank goodness someone had the foresight to save this one.
Your low viewpoint looking up shows the architecture off so well.

A splendid example of Tudor building, and an original POV. Interesting caption too.

An excellent viewpoint chosen to show off the pristine condition of the building, and also makes for a good composition against the blue sky. A good introduction as well, Pamela.
