Photo Article 1924 - a date stone found at the Greek Hovel

We were told, when we bought the Greek Hovel in 2014, that it was 100 years old and had been substantially rebuilt after the commies burned down in the Civil War of the late forties. Perhaps we might date it a bit more accurately now.

The workmen who are turning the hovel into a palace have uncovered a stone as you can see below. We can't make out the exact date but the year is 1924. Was the hovel built then or extended then? We don't know. But the snake killers (aka  the workmen), George the Architect and I are all chuffed by the discovery. The stone will be preserved and will remain on the external wall of the new enlarged ex-hovel as it takes shape.

Mercantile Ports & Logistics – how do AIM and Nomad Cenkos put up with the stench?

Okay AIM is loathe to boot off any company given how the World’s Most Successful Growth market is shrinking and Lagos Securities just wants retainers so will act for anyone, I answer my own question. But even by the standards of the AIM Cesspit, surely there comes a point where one says “enough is enough.”
