The man jumped back in rage and left empty-handed.  Following the war, the Chesnuts sold eggs to maintain Bloomsbury. This 20’ by 14’ room is truly a garden fair, featuring a 1929 queen-sized bed, two comfortable wing -backed reading chairs, a lawyer’s bookcase desk/writing area, all season fireplace and private in suite bath.
