Seeing as I was havering on about thinking about the way things were when AR was producing the books, there's a nice thing that Google Street View has made possible.
The link should be to a view of Low Ludderburn, where AR and Genia lived when he started to write the SA series. Externally, it's remarkably little changed from the pictures of the time. On the left, just through the gate, is the garage they built to house Rattletrap. Just beyond it is the converted barn in which AR had his study, and if you go up the road a few mouse clicks you can look into the first floor window of the room where he worked. Looking right, past the barn, you can see the wonderful view they must have had every day.
Rather magic, I think.
