The Magnificent June Simpson

A truly stunning shot of June Simpson posing by the window taken by Harrison Marks and probably located at Ewhurst Manor by the style of the windows.

  1. I don’t think this is from Ewhurst, as the window frame lattices behind June Simpson are rectangular like: <br /> _<br /> | |<br /> <br />whereas those in the recent Ann Austin entry, certainly at Ewhurst, are diagonal like:<br /><br /> /<br /> /<br /><br />Also, I’d guess that the AA shoot is from 1960-61 making it one of the earliest I know at Ewhurst, but not early enough for JS

  2. Having said that, Ewhurst was quite a sizable structure an in addition to the ground floor had two other floors, and how far the building went back in depth is anyone&#39;s guess, but the original aerial plans give a rough though not exact idea. Whilst the front windows were of a differing design, you cant rule out that other parts of the house remained the same. I&#39;s speaking from experience

    • Thanks Phil and as the original layout and plans are vague to us, all we can do is piece the puzzle together from photo&#39;s from that time and knowledge from others. Still Ewhurst was an intriguing place and if I had more time I&#39;m sure I could wade through all the photo&#39;s and video&#39;s and come up with a plan of the place! I did see someone on the Ewhurst Yahoo group had put a word

  3. I&#39;ve just been digging through some pictures and can see that there are specific differences on the leaded windows at Ewhurst, in particular the front door which has a honeycomb formation. Based on this, and the size of the property, which was immense, I would suggest that the square formation windows may still be Ewhurst.
