Delving under the floorboards in the spare room turned up some treasures from the past. Two sets of workers have been under there, judging by the fag packets they left behind:

The first were from the ’30s when we think some rewiring went on (perhaps including a replacement bell system to summon the maid).

The second were plumbers who put in the hot water tank and all the pipes from the utility into the spare room. We found a message on the plumber’s Hamlet packet that indicated it was left there in 1990. We couldn’t find a message on the ’30s packets, so maybe they were left as rubbish.
