What an interesting image.

In this age of the Internet, where all TV content is digitised, it should now be possible for all those unsightly TV antenas to be removed from rooftops...what an improvement that would be.
Philine: The satellite dishes should be removed, too. Many thanks, Ray!

The mundane and the surreal. How odd it would be to live in an unassuming terrace house and have all this grandeur rising in the background..
Philine: There are the different worlds next to each other, esp. in class societies. Many thanks, Chris!
Haute ville et basse ville ..deux modes de vies surement !
Philine: vraiment - merci bien, Claudine!
You would get a shock if you saw the price of those modest Victorian cottages Philine
Philine: You know that. "Terraced houses have been popular in the United Kingdom, particularly England and Wales, since the 17th century. ... The design became a popular way to provide high-density accommodation for the working class in the 19th century, when terraced houses were built extensively in urban areas throughout Victorian Britain."

...or the the haves and the have nots. Mind you, I expect living win Windsor, the "have not's are probably still relatively comfortable, I would expect. I wonder if the Queen ops up on the castle ramparts and gazes down on her minions? No, she is far too gracious to do that.
Philine: Bill said that the Victorian cottages have their proud prices today. The terrace houses "became a popular way to provide high-density accommodation for the working class in the 19th century, when terraced houses were built extensively in urban areas throughout Victorian Britain." No, the Queen would not see these houses. The sweet little devil was active today again, oh sorry, no stress, Alan!

It is a traditional English phrase to say that one should know their place. I don’t buy that myself.
Philine: Windsor might be a fine place. Bill said that these "modest Victorian cottages" (originally built for the working class) have now their prices. Many thanks, Chad!
So different from here!
Philine: Many thanks,Mary!
Certainly a great difference isn't there, and I do agree with Bill, I bet those small terreced houses are worth a fortune these days.
Philine: You might be right - formerly they might have been houses for the working glass. Many thanks, Brian!
And to think that inequality is actually increasing in this country!
Philine: I read about that in our newspaper (FAZ). Many thanks, Prof. Wilson!
