When the Shand family built this ornate late-Victorian house in 1890-91, it was the latest thing. It had central heating, closets, electric lighting and even indoor plumbing. Climb the tower steps to get a panoramic view of the river where large vessels lay alongside the wharves, when Windsor was a major shipping and manufacturing town. Most of the things acquired and used by the Shand family since the house was built are still there. Among them are the furnishings chosen by Henrie Shand as a young bride, the carriage for her children, Errol and Gwendolyn, and the trophies won by Clifford for racing on his high-wheeled bicycle.
