Errol's seventh home! 1923 – 1924

I hope Inga you give me permission
to use your picture,
it
is such a nice picture and
so much better than the one I have!
Inga took this picture
end of September, a few weeks ago
when vis
iting
London
and Errol's schools. I hope you read her great post!


On this address 99-101 Castelnau,
today in the London Borough of Richmond
upon Thames, London SW13 9 and in Errol's time in the London Borough of
Barnes stood the private boarding school named
“South West London
College”.

Errol attended this school
from October 1923 to June 1924 at the age of fourteen and fifteen
returning to Hobart in June of 1924 w
ith
his
father.  His mother w
ith
Rosemary spent those years in Paris.

In regards to the times Errol spent at
this
school there seems to be somewhat a confusion in the attendance
record as Errol was apparently close to two years at this school,
maybe somebody has better record of his exact timing.

“South West London
College
was a minor
public school that has long since disappeared. The school was s
ituated
at
numbers 99-101 Castelnau, which is today a road of many regency villas as seen in the above picture.

    Hi Inga, thank you for allowing me to use your picture, which is so much better than the one I have and which I used on that earlier post I made about the school.

    It's all in the style and presentation.

    I am waiting for the book anyway come hell or high water!
    You know very well that I am waiting already for a long time and told you in an earlier post that I would like to have it before I am visiting Errol. Oh btw, I am not militant and you know that – never – just wanted to tell you he was a boarder and I have the document. It was intended as a help for you.
