Guest Posted December 17, 2016 Share Posted December 17, 2016 #38 - Residence of the Earl of GowranThe residence is separated from the bustle of the street by a five foot tall brick wall. A carriage arch with ornate wrought-iron gates leads into the modest but elegant front garden. A gravel driveway forks towards a small stable with an attached carriage house. The facade of the two-story townhouse itself is plastered with lime, and the fashionable sash windows have been painted black for contrast. Above the massive walnut wood double door is a balcony with a wrought-iron balustrade, supported by four pillars, creating a small portico. John arrived at the house (near to his own) on time for tea. He found Lady Gowran perfectly frustrating. An Irish Catholic who seemed perfectly commendable and civilized. Time would tell whether her husband would be the same. He was curious too at her implications of French aid and vendettas against the Dutch. He knocked politely, having brought some scones.
