Donkey, Donkey! What do you do?
Carry loads for all of you.
Donkey, Donkey, what do you eat?
Oh! Grass and leaves and carrots so sweet.
(“Donkey, Donkey”, nursery rhyme)

Take a good look at the Donkey House – can you see that it’s an interesting dark colour? This is because the architect Teodor Talowski – remember him? – used bricks of his own recipe made at his own brickyard. He wanted all of his buildings to look older than they really were. The sculpture on the façade depicts a donkey’s head, giving the building its name.
