Many thanks Peri for one of the best comments ever!

Show Low, AZ - United States

EXCEPTIONAL! The amount of detain in this work is phenomenal! I feel as though, if I leaned in and stared at it long enough, I'd smell the smoke and wet ash, and hear the squelching of the boots. I am very impressed! Then ... after this, reading your description ... Awed, is the more appropriate word!

Thank you Kim, what is fasinating is to be able to visit Motcombe Street today and see this magnificent building still very much the same as it appears here.
