Kenwood: then and now, part 1.



In the context of all this jibber-jabber, quite an "important" photo has surfaced - to wit, an image giving a clear view of the north-western end roof and rear of Kenwood, as they were before the enormous renovation of the mid-1990s. Thus we now have an illustration, albeit imperfect, of the original Tarrant-built garage - plus final proof that it was indeed demolished, and that therefore Kenwood now has no remaining connection with the "master builder" himself. The new garage is a much more substantial beast - indeed, it's the size of a small house in and of itself. Many thanks to blog reader Eric Nernie, who found the old photo in his archive and sent it in.
