Original front door of 22 Hyde Park Gate from the inside
Private houses in London are apt to be much of a muchness, The door opens on a dark hall; from the dark hall rises a narrow staircase; off the landing opens a double drawing-room, and in this double drawing-room are two sofas on either side of a blazing fire, six armchairs, and three long windows giving upon the street. 

“Portrait of a Londoner” (75-6)
