A Home From Home!

   I am reminded in a letter from an old, old friend that the Village is not so different from the capital of London after all. With its dome of St. Pauls Cathedral, even that of the Old Bailey, St. Stephens Tower where the bell "Big Ben" is housed, and somewhere in between lies the Prisoner's home of No.1 Buckingham Place.
   So where do these structures fit in with the Village? Well obviously they wouldn't, not being of the scale of buildings that they are. However the Village does enjoy their equivalents, the Green Dome No.2’s residence, and the Campanile the Bell Tower and in between there is No.6’s cottage of  '6 Private.’ Although this cottage isn’t really a home from home, seeing as the cottage contains only the study of The Prisoner’s London residence. However using a little imagination the Village can be a real "home from home" even if the Village is made up of a mixture of architecture, Italianate, and a more pleasing atmosphere for the majority of its citizens. It's really only those of No.6's defying disposition who take against it! Everything No.6 could want is here, and so the Village is not so very different from home!

Be seeing you
