    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.

    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?
