Tower House and Round Tower, Portsmouth
         
  Tower House and the Round Tower. The house was occupied by the maritime artist  from 1906 until his death in 1931. It had been a complex of stores, chambers, wharves when the Wyllies converted it into a dream house for a maritime artist in which he could almost touch the ships passing by. More about Wyllie at Memorials & Monuments in Portsmouth.
