Artist's Description

Since the signing of the Anglo-Japanese Friendship Treaty in 1854, businesses from Japan had appeared throughout London.
But few could claim the popularity and success of the Heavenly Lotus Tea House. In it’s long trade run it could boast among it’s patrons; royalty, military leaders, nobility, stage stars, industrialists and even the odd crime Lord.

Unfortunately, a few Londoners it seemed, were not as enthralled with the Far East as the rest of the general population.
In the notorious summer of 1874 Nationalists bombed the road leading to the tea house, in an attempt to cut off trade and ruin the business. Mr Nakagawa, ever the philosopher, with his staff simply cleared an area in their extensive gardens and built a landing platform so that derigible passengers could still visit. This was meant only as a temporary measure, but the air-only access only added to the Tea House’s popularity and 2 more platforms were eventually built to cope with customer traffic.
The hole in the road was never repaired but was filled with water and became a rather fetching ornamental moat.
