Hump Day Hook

Another Wednesday, and another Hump Day Hook. I'm still working on Finding Rupert as my main WiP, and today I'm giving you a bit more from Rupert's exploration of his ancestral home:

***


Making his way back along the passage towards the library, and looking into each room as he passed, Rupert came across another scene from the Peveril family's Civil War history. This painting, hung in an anteroom though not easily visible from the visitors' side of the guard-rope, was better lit, and depicted a busy crowd scattered before the whole South Front of the Lodge. He shone his torch along the bottom of the frame, and read the inscription engraved on a small brass plate: The Surrender of Carsingthorpe Lodge, 12 July 1645. Shining his torch along the lower part of the painting, Rupert found the name of the artist, and the year 1648.
