The last book, Three Houses, by Angela Thirkell, was also a Radio 4 book of the week over Christmas and is the childhood memoirs of the grandchild of Edward Burne-Jones. It really is from another age and reminded me very strongly of my granny's memoirs which appeared on my blog a year or so ago. I am a huge fan of the Pre-Raphaelites and their followers and we have a print of The Golden Stairs by Burne-Jones which belonged to granny and which I love. The original is in Tate Britain.
The Golden Stairs by Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1880)
