Just as a reminder, Roy Brooks was an estate agent from 1950-1971. His witty, truthful descriptions made his ads worth scouring the property ads of the Sunday Times and Observer. Here is the next in our series -
Darkest Pimlico. Seedy FAMILY HOUSE two rooms in basement, ground, 1st and 2nd floor and attic room on 3rd. Decor! – peeling, faded and fly-blown. Garden – good for Westminster – all of 20ft. Lease 80yrs. G.R £60p.a. If you are too late to secure this gem we have a spare along the road rather more derelict. A lightly built member of our staff negotiated the basement stair but our Mr Halstead went crashing through.
