Post card from Cragside house

We have just had a wild, cold and damp week in Northumberland but despite the lack of summer sun , I am truly in love with the county. Here are a few postcard snaps of the inside of Cragside ,It was the first house to be lit by hydroelectric power in 1878 and was a modern house of its time being one of the first to use the lightbulb. Its owner , Lord Armstrong  knew how to live as had installed his very own spa complete with sauna and plunge pool .
