This postcard shows the view into the Music Room from the end of the corridor. Bombay armchair, Persian rugs and a leopard skin. Light fittings hanging from Corridor. The Chandelier in the Music Room has already changed.
Plants in corridor: Cordyline australis in terracotta pot. Just visible are what look like young tree ferns growing in Azulejo jardineres.
