I intended to do this, but there was something on the menu called 'Gentleman's Tea,' and I felt morally obligated to order it. Turns out this version of afternoon tea came with beer and meat. Perfect!

What I did find on my camera on my way home was a bunch of pics of furniture from one of the museums we went to: the Victoria and Albert Museum. Technically this museum is free, but they do a good job of guilting you into donating a few bucks to see the displays.
There was a lot of cool future in this place. I saw a couple pieces of note that I will share here.
The first is a sideboard designed by E.W. Godwin around 1870. I can't see myself building either of these two pieces, but of the two I can see including some elements from this piece on a future project.
