• Charles at "Auntie's"

    Charles at "Auntie's": this is how he would refer to 9 Derwent road later in life. But what I wonder is where would he have slept? In the room above the dining room? BTW, this makes me think: how were each of the rooms called? Front room and back room, OK, but next to the kitchen? I wonder if Grandma didn't call her kitchen the "scullery", and therefore the dining-room would have been the kitchen! Help! Oh, and upstairs? Top back room? I'll have to check, and write a post with the plan of the house!! Any precise information welcome! Anyway, here goes, Charles, our reigning figure of the day!

    Funny how the mention of a jumper makes photos appear! Thanks Tini for this one (must be during one of Charles' stays at 9DR in 1959)!

    It must have been during his very brief period of acceptance of British taste, upon arrival on this very different land. Ah, love, what would one not do for thee!
