Old woss’is name lived ‘ere.

21 Dec
‘It was the top flat of a house that was reputedly the American Consulate during the war, and though it might not have suited everybody, it suited me’.

Pip Larkin gets a small plaque for his endurance if nothing else; eighteen years in an attic flat overlooking Pearson Park. I’d liked to have shown more of the place, a large Victorian town house, but high hedges and a high gate with a ‘Beware of the Dog’ sign, along with sounds of said dog sniffling and growling around somewhat put me off. Visitors to next year’s city of culture are duly warned.

    Regardless, it makes for an interesting photo op.
