Last week I was transcribing a recording of my interview with the painter, Noel Forster (1932–2007), for a forthcoming monograph on him. Noel recalls his first stay in London, in Lupus Street, Pimlico. Strangely enough this was the very same street where I too had lived in 1975 after coming down from Oxford, and to add to the coincidence I had then moved to Oxford Road, Putney, where Noel had also lived.
