27 Sat. Very cold, dismal, rain all day with a rise to 49 degrees at night. Got the groceries as usual. Cycled to Morden cat's meat shop. Also collected my blue suit from Eastman's the cleaners in Coombe Lane.; cost 3/6 - looks like new. Wrote long-letter to Harold Conrade-Marshall.

  1. Do you think Eastmans would be able to clean my puffa jacket without all the the down clumping together?

  2. These are the people to ask: http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/image/epw056247 - Eastmans Cleaning & Dyeing Works, Acton (1938 photo) - and http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/image/epw006184 (1921)
