Until his death in 2000, Dennis Severs lived in London's east-end in a house that had no running water, no electricity, no toilet, no shower, no toaster, no TV, no modern conveniences of any kind.

Mr. Severs had done his best to take up residence in the 18th century, and he and his butler managed a pretty good job of it.

You could tour Mr. Severs’ house and as a limited version of time travel, it was a lot of fun. I got a closer to the 18th century, even if I never felt I was moving away very much from the present day.
