This may have been asked before but does anyone out there know why the front doors in Roupell Street are wonky? The top of the door frames are all at a slight angle to the horizontal - in some cases leaving a gap above the door. The houses all seem perfectly straight and the street isn't on a hill. Was there a shortage of skilled carpenters when these houseswere built or had they had a touch too much of the local ale? Hope someone can answer this mystery.
