    Very interesting to see the South London connections. I had read about her turbulent life with Laughton, but knew nothing of her background. I agree that a blue plaque should be placed in Farley Road.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    Likewise. Her childhood is a book waiting to be written! x

    It has been! The first section of “Elsa Lanchester – Herself” covers her childhood and early career; it is a fascinating read. It becomes more of a biography of Laughton after her marriage to him and is a bit rambling. Second hand copies are relatively easy to get hold of, in the U.K., at least.

    My pleasure, Paul. It was wonderful to discover so much about her early years.

    Ah, I thought you’d mentioned that it was rather sparse when it came to her childhood or was that another book of hers you were talking about or did I misread you?

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
