The first thing that I noticed when I turned the corner into the crescent was that the ugly modern lamp-posts had been replaced. The new ones took the form of old-style gas lamps, and looked lovely.
Then I spotted the road sign. Apparently I now lived in “Thistledown Street”.
Even more interesting were the signs hanging along the buildings. All painted Georgian drab green, they revealed the trades of my neighbours. There were now plenty of opportunities to go shopping, late eighteenth century style, right on my doorstep.
