Mum & Dad purchased 41 St Pauls Close on a 99 year lease. (Semi-detached) Very common in those days. Previously they had lived in Conway Place. My sister, Gladys, & I were born in this house.

I love the story about the baby grand piano being delivered. I will ask Muriel to tell this tale. The front window had to be removed to get it in.
Once in the lounge room any visitors needed to put their knees under it to sit down.
