A while back I bought a copy of Practical Television from February 1952. It’s a fascinating look at a time when TVs were new technology and there were societies of people interested in what we might now call “hacking” with their TVs.
It's an odd one this - I *think* it's actually a converted more conventional house, rather than a complete new build. If you look at satellite photos you'll see a rectangular house, with no curving frontage, on that plot. It seems an oddly expensive property for Frinton.
When I rebuilt this site at the beginning of 2013, ready for the second cycle of the diary, I didn’t have time to finish the design of the pages. While all the behind-the-scenes code had been built from scratch, the visible parts didn’t get much attention. The monochrome look was functional but didn’t give the impression a website about a 17th century character should.
