Background Information

Wenham Joseph Bassett-Lowke was the founder of the toy company Bassett-Lowke in Northampton specialising in model railways, boats and ships and constuction sets. In 1916 he commissioned the renowned architect and designer, Charles Rennie Macintosh, to build a house for him in Northampton, 78 Derngate. It is uncertain whether the couple at the beginning of the film leaving the house is Bassett-Lowke and his wife.
