Thank you so much.I have never ever seen any of those pictures.Rathbone for me was the very image of Sherlock Holmes depicted in the stories newspaper incarnation.
Apparently he was know for throwing parties and dinners, as (I’m finding out) was Dirk Bogarde. And, I’m sure they did it with staff – something that none of us is familiar with – another era.
Lovely and lovely dogs too.
Now that is a swanky house to say the least.
Fabulous home. Oh, don’t mention Cumberbatch in the same breath as Basil! The notion of people calling Holmes Sherlock and him not eviscerating them with words brings me out in hives. *winks*
Hm. Basil and Dirk. I’m making no further comment!
Wouldn’t that be Benedict and Basil?
In the vein of Mr George all I can say is that Mr Rathbone ‘Had something of an eye for interior design!”.
