  • Peter Phillips says:

    I don’t know about this house but for many years up until his death, Sargent lived in Albert Hall Mansions. At the stage door he would get into a limo, having initialled admirers’ programmes with a blue pencil, and it is said that he was driven twice around the Hall before being deposited at his front door.

    Hot Mars bars and smoked salmon? And the English have the nerve to sneer at the Scots?
