Chassis No. B298MD. Reg No. NAR 867. £22. 00.
Snippets: Ordered by Edward Eardley Russell of “Garthowen”. The Broadway. Letchworth. The name “Garthowen” is the title of a novel written by Allen Raine in 1899. her stories were always based in Wales & 3 of her novels were later made into films – “Torn Sails”. “A Welsh Singer” & “By Berwen Banks”. The house was built in 1907 for Henry & Martha Laggatt. Henry was killed in 1916 at the Battle of the Somme. Edward Russell was a chemist & in 1934 he registered the Trademark “Drezene” for use with his perfumery & toiletry products. Mr & Mrs Russell lived at Garthowen until their deaths in 1963. they died just 29 days apart. Some obscure facts relating to Letchworth are: in 1907 the Russian revolutionist Lenin stayed in the town; the first roundabout in the UK is Sollershott Circus on The Broadway - when it opened in 1909 motorists could actually choose which in direction they went round! Laurence Olivier's father was a clergyman in Letchworth & Laurence himself made his stage debut here in 1925; during WWII the Spirella building (which until then had made “Corsets. swimwear & Ladies Garments”) produced parachutes & decoding machinery for the war effort.
