The person who did this leadlight window either couldn’t fit the word Shakespeare on it, or couldn’t spell!
The house “Linnwood” was an innovation for its time – generating its own electricity and having the first telephone in the district. A newspaper article of the 1890’s describes ‘Linnwood’ as “being one of the most perfectly finished domestic establishments in the Southern Hemisphere – a home that is just a dream of every convenience and comfort”.
