The Sample Room

In Chapter Four, I went into some detail of how Morris and David built their Sample Room. I was able to do this because of an old photo I have in my possession. On the back of the photo, written in pencil, is the date ‘1893’.


It has been photoshopped to enhance the quality.

Excellent! Can't wait for number 3!
