The Old Doctor's House

This is another sign that I cannot quite believe that it has taken me this long to get around to posting. I presume that it has been there for ages and the only weak excuse that I can some up with is that the secrecy of a famous previous owner kept it well hidden.

I also find it an interesting example of how we use English; the word ordering suggests that it means the house of the old doctor but it could mean the doctor's old house. Other languages do this better.
