Beautiful photograph Tommy.
Lily had a lovely old house in Bournemouth where she entertained the famous people of that time.
It was a Hotel last time I was there.
Never knew the Belfast connection.
Thank you for posting.

Indeed Jack.
Captain Ferguson and his wife had a house near to ours when I was a child.

Ditto,... real nice photography and architecture, and several very interesting pieces of historical information.

It seems that the hotel connection is a local myth though,... but the original owner of the building is a very interesting character in her own right.     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langtry_Manor
