he structure standing at 50 Elliscombe Road appears, from the
outside, to be a typical London townhouse. But inside, it is quite
a different story. All traces of the 20th century have been removed.
The house has been fitted to appear and function just as it would
have in the year 1900. There is no television, computer, or microwave
oven. The Bowlers had to live without the benefit of even central
heating or electricity.
