    I kinda like the slab shutters on the window. Haven’t seen these before, but it makes sense–it would have been cheaper that draperies for large windows.

    Really like the quilted jacket. It also shows how long people have been pampering their pooches and making them wear silly collars šŸ™‚

    I agree, the first thing to catch my eye was the quilted jacket. I also am intrigued with the dress of the servant holding the plate of biscuits.

    These pictures are sure exercising my observation. I look first and then see if I notice the same things you list underneath. It sure took me awhile to find the bird this time. Then after I found it, I felt dumb not to have seen it sooner.

    I wonder what’s behind the curtain?

    Mr. Townsend sells bottles like the one on the table. Looks like the woman sitting there has been sampling the contents. Did Mr. Townsend slip her a “mickey finn”?

    1730-1735 maybe. The young man is wearing his stockings over his breaches, an older man may continue this fashion in later years, but doubtful a younger man would.
    Regards, Keith.
