|The house as it is today|
(As close as I could get to the top picture - without getting run over!)
|The house as Hogarth would have seen it in the early 18th century |
looking across Chiswick Common Field
The house was built between 1713 and 1715 in what was then a walled orchard. The Hogarth family used it from 1749.
|Standing in front of the mulberry tree are the Victorian inhabitants of the house;|
Mr Allgrove, his wife Elizabeth, and another lady.
|A travesty! |
If you're going to name a building after Hogarth-
make sure its worthy of his name.
