First Page of Number Seven Queer Street
No. 7 Queer Street" is the address of a very remarkable man. " Queer Street" was originally Queen Street, but soon nicknamed " Queer Street" for reasons that will become plain to readers of this book of stories. It is an odd little backwater down Black-friars way. and Number Seven is an old house that stands at a corner, fronting on one side the River Thames and its shipping— a Muirhead Bone etching by day, a flaming Turner or a misty Whistler study at night—and on the other a sleepy little square containing gardens open to the public. Here / have often strolled with Pennoyer on a summer's evening, or sat talking on one of the battered wooden benches under the tall plane trees, sooty with London smuts but loud with the singing of the birds whom nothing, not even the blitzing of London in the Great War, seems to daunt. Pennoyer and I first met when we were undergraduates at Oxford together. He was several years my elder, but we had similar tastes, both being rather " solitaries " by nature and preferring good talk, books, music or a game of chess to the usual outdoor or amorous sports that appeal to the young male!
