Norwich. According to Nikolaus Pevsner, Edward Boardman was the most successful Norwich architect of the second half of the nineteenth century, Since one of his rivals was George Skipper, that's quite an achievement. Lots of detail in the big views. Type Z for a bigger view. For a full-screen view, next click the frame in the top right corner between the comment balloon and the autoplay arrow. If you want a bigger view then that -- really, get a grip.

Looks better big, I swear. Type Z to see if I'm lying.

Freakier -- um, more evocative -- in the big view. Type Z if you dare.

Dr. G. W. Hofferd's white oak

This the fourth shot I've posted of the London Normal School or its grounds (if you click the PiP at top right you will learn about what a normal school was and the history of this one). It's not that I have an inordinate interest in the school but it's on my way to the supermarket. I can't miss it. Anyway, this white oak has a commemorative stone saying it was grown from an acorn by Dr. G. W. Hofferd. Well, that's what white oaks grow from, ain't it? OK -- Dr. Hofferd was head of science, horticulture, and agriculture at the normal school 80 years ago, and his tree is now an attractive part of the elegant landscaping at the normal school.. The trees have started to leaf here, so I managed to get this just in time. Here's a link to Dr. H's photo in the 1941 yearbook; he's at top left on the lefthand page: archive.org/details/yearbooksscrapbo1941onta/page/4/mode/2up

Another crop of an old photo to 16 X 9 format. The things you find to amuse yourself with during a pandemic. I like the bigger views. Type Z if a comparison interests you.

I recommend the large view (type Z). I could be wrong.
