"An Ideal Home No. III: Space Economy At A Wedding Reception" In the bustling city of London, at the entrance of Middlesex Hospital on Mortimer Street, lies a grand celebration unfolding. The Alexandra Palace, known as the home of the B. B. C. , stands tall and proud as it hosts a magnificent reception. The year is 1977, and excitement fills the air as Red Rum triumphantly returns after winning the Grand National. On this memorable 2nd April evening, a reception fit for champions awaits him. Not far away, another kind takes place - that of an Apprentice embarking on their journey towards success. With determination in their eyes and dreams in their hearts, they step into a world full of possibilities. Transporting ourselves back to centuries past, we find ourselves marveling at Petronella Dunois' Dolls House from c. 1676. This miniature masterpiece serves as both an exquisite work of art and a symbol of hospitality within its tiny walls. Fast forward to more recent times; we witness Victor Stiebel's elegant dress gracing yet another glamorous reception. Its intricate design captures attention and admiration from all who lay eyes upon it. Our historical journey continues with Jacques de Molay's reception in the 1840s - an event shrouded in mystery and intrigue. The atmosphere crackles with anticipation as guests gather to honor this enigmatic figure. As time progresses further into the future, we encounter Hat Wireless technology from the 1930s - revolutionizing communication by allowing us to transmit messages without wires or boundaries, and is through such advancements that they can now connect people across vast distances effortlessly. At Wolverton Station stands evidence that even royalty appreciates warm receptions; King George IV himself experienced one during his visit there. The station becomes alive with regal splendor as he steps off his train amidst cheers and applause. Across borders and oceans lies Queen Sirikit of Thailand, gracing the Thai Embassy with her presence.
