The Right Angle Journal - Summer 2020 - 13

(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14)

Novelist and historian Peter Ackroyd, writing in the introduction to Severs's book about 18 Folgate Street, says: "The
journey through the house becomes a journey through time;
with its small rooms and hidden corridors, its whispered asides
and sudden revelations, it resembles a pilgrimage through
life itself." And truly, visiting the ten rooms is a revelation,
a personal cultural experience that generates superlatives.
Artist David Hockney likened his visit to the experience one
would have at a great opera. Make that an opera with no subtitles. Without signage, costumed interpreters or audio-guide
headsets, little details take on out-sized significance.
Wet washing hangs from the low ceiling to dry, a dirty chamber pot sits in the corner, a crust of dark bread is torn in two
on a pewter plate. If a shivering Bob Cratchit (or the resident
trustee) had poked his head through the door, I'd hardly have
been surprised.
I left as I'd arrived: in silence and alone, but with a new and
distinct sense of un-ease. I had the oddest feeling I'd intruded
on someone's privacy, taken advantage of their hospitality,
snooped through their private realm.
I tried to explain this to the stylish chap with the iPad as
we left. "Well, you either see it...or you don't," he said, then
smiling, added: "And I'd say you saw it."
