Camilla Baker repeats (with embellishments) her thoroughly enjoyable talk about her great-grandfather, Sir Herbert Baker.


Earlier this year, Camilla was in Johannesburg and entertained us as part of a special tour of Villa Arcadia. Unfortunately, numbers were limited at the time and we had so many requests that Camilla graciously agreed to repeat the talk virtually once she returned home to Owletts, the Baker family home in Kent.


In this unique presentation, Camilla includes family portraits and rare photographs of Owletts, the home in which Sir Herbert grew up and to which he returned after his time in South Africa. He died at Owletts in 1946. The talk will also include slides of many of his very fine buildings in South Africa, India and London.
