Brian Race loaned me this photograph of our house, which was taken in 1985. You can see Brian at the left of the picture. He is making and installing the wood-framed storm windows that we still use. At the right is Elizabeth Hyde, who bought the house in the early 1960s and set about restoring it. As is the way of old houses, once it was restored it needed constant maintaining. It was a never-ending process for Elizabeth, who spent summers here for decades (as well as two winters) until her death in 1993.
