Two hundred years later, it came into the ownership of another banker, Sir Francis Child. In 1761, Robert Adam, one of the most fashionable architects in England, remodeled the house and his neoclassical interiors are of the most notable. The metal trough is my favourite type of urinal, typically olden-day British and and without modesty screens."
