Parking his car

I was born in Harpenden and set-up home there after getting married in 1973. My second house was at 13 Roundwood Lane. There was a short stretch of off-road parking, in front, which ran from number 1 to number 19. One Sunday afternoon I happened to glance out of the front room window and saw a buff-coloured Rolls Royce, parking alongside my garden wall. It was Eric and his wife. They were close friends of the Hamersley family (well known antiques dealers) who lived at number 12 but they could not accommodate his Rolls in their driveway.

What a lovely and very funny man he was. I well remember him coming out of Barclays Bank and doing a silly dance around his Rolls Royce .

Pity you don't have a better photograph of the great man :) Ed: we have added some more cheerful photos from the internet!
