One of three photographs of a house in East Devonport built in the Gothic Revival architectural style. Gothic features of the house include the arched windows and steeped pitch of the roof. This photograph shows a boy, presumably Jack, climbing a beanstalk that grows to the roof of the house. Jack and the Beanstalk is an enduringly popular English folktale which has existed in some form since at least the mid-18th century. Versions of the tale often have medievalism aspects, especially in the depiction of the giant, where he might be thought to represent an uncouth medieval past.
