Its a wonderful piece full of character the enamel LIVE DOG WITH CARE sign still in situ as are a few travel labels, bearing her name and address we assume the kennel would have housed/carried Miss Hartleys famous deerhounds to shows etc. She is known to have had up to eight living at and having the run of Fletton Tower.
