Stu, if I ever end up in London, I’ll try to connect with you. Would be fun and I’ll tip.
I could not find any info on A.E. Tennant and no previous owner of the house was named Tennant but it was common for owners to rent out a room to wartime factory workers so it may not be too much of a stretch to think this person was living there in that capacity.
Whoa awesome find! Thanks for the research!!!This would make sense, especially because the daughter of the couple who owned the house, Mr. and Mrs. Louis W. Blauman, had gotten married in 1941, opening up some space. I found a newspaper mention of a serviceman's wife and baby living there in December of 1943, which further supports the theory that they were renting out rooms.
