This looks like wonderfully appropriate reading material for dull men:
“All Fall Down: Christchurch’s Lost Chimneys,” by Geoff Rice
It documents the different types of chimneys and chimney pots found in my home city.
Regrettably there are many fewer chimneys around now, following the recent earthquakes (which I can assure you were not at all dull).
I’ve just ordered a copy through my local library, a pleasantly dull place.
Yours most sincerely,
Great. I agree. Wonderfully approptirea reading material for dull men.
This reminds me of a book we came across a while back: “A Lust for Window Sills,” by Harry Mount.
