I've done another challenge because the last one was a bit rubbish. (and it wasn't a sign it was a plaque).
This is so typically eccentric and English. You have the door sign (which, as Bobbie has pointed out, is quite an English thing) saying Toad Hall which is from Kenneth Graham's 'Wind in the Willows', so perhaps they have some autocratic Toad figure causing general mayhem in his car and throwing his weight around. It is quite a small terrace house but 'an Englishman's home is his castle' so they have called it the name of a stately home, albeit a fictional one. (and it is jokey, the English sense of humour). They also have a Victorian looking lamppost, which lends the pathway up to the door a bit of gravitas. No need for it, it's quite light round there at nights. But it harks back to the last English golden age, and perhaps we like reminding of this. It's 2007 but I like the way people just do what they want round here, even if it involves a bit of slightly naff Victoriana and toads.
