"We lived for four happy years in the Montague Hotel, this survives, but is today a much grander
building. I remember exploring illicitly beyond the green glazed door, which gave on to the staff quarters,
and i remember the maid who suffered with an un-repaired cleft palate""I had a gas fire in my bedroom,
and a low high chair with a tray. My mother kept telling me not to sit on the tray, but i persisted,
and eventually tipped off onto the gas fire. Fortunately it wasn't lit at the time, so the worst that
i aquired was a small scar, which refused to grow hair"
An advert in a 1925 newspaper read:
