Uncle Pumblechook of Charles Dickens‘s Great Expectations is the stereotype of the shallow class-obsessed and envious man who is also a hypocrite and one who exploits others; he is comical in his pompous fatuity. In fact, he has no redeeming characteristics. For one thing, he never displays any affection for his relatives; during Pip’s lifetime, there is no love or kindness or real concern for him ever shown by Pumblechook.

As we strolled around Rochester this afternoon, I came across a wooden door which had the writing above it that said ‘Mr Pumblechook Lived Here.

And I thought it would be a great image for Dan’s Thursday Doors Photography Challenge.
