  • I too was related to Jack and Silva Carter – they were both second-cousins, so I visited ‘Guinea Pig Hall’ many times in my childhood. I believe it was originally owned by an old uncle, Sol Carter, who also owned ‘Stornaway’ in Harold Gardens, which my parents rented when they were first married, before moving to the newly built ‘Bryn-Mawr’ in Athelstan Gardens, in 1936.

  • I remember living there in the early 1950s. There was a little round out-house behind it….it was thatched as well, and I remember lying in bed and watching woodworm crawling in and out of the woodwork!!!

  • I remember a relation of my granddad living here in the 70s, I think his name was Jack Carter. He always intrigued us children, as he had the bottom part of his ear lobes missing. My granddad was Frank Carter.

  • I believe that in the late 1940s and 50s the family of Bolton (Shirley, Rita, David, etc.) lived there. I went to school with them, a large family for a small house.
