Artist's Description

Ye Old Post Office Cottage in Alderbury, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK, is a splendid example of how multifunctional our old buildings are; often they would begin life as nothing more than a medieval hovel, then as time went by beer or food or something else would be served from one of the windows; as the owner grew more wealthy, the building would improve and perhaps one room would be used to sit in to sup ale and later become a hostelry, or perhaps the front room used as a shop, or, as in this case, an extension built when it became a post office; it has now turned full circle, and is back as it began, a simple family dwelling. I love them because they contain so mush history and for the fact that they look so very beautiful.
