Johnson's House; Keats' House

Not many years separate Dr. Johnson, a classicist in the spirit of Alexander Pope and Wordsworth, the Romantic Poet. Yet there is a a great shift of taste. Not only can it be seen in the poetry, but also in the architecture. Consider these two houses.

The Keats' House (white) is in Hampstead at Keat's Grove, Hampstead, London NW3 2RR. Johnson's is 7 Gough Square, London, EC4A 3DE.
