THE NAME Reeves in your front page article of August 11, about the Croydon furniture shop fire, immediately caught my eye. I bought my desk there on which I write this letter.
The receipt has always been in the drawer: ‘E. Reeves 112-120 Church Street, Croydon. S/H Desk £8-0-0 30/12/67’.
At that time I was living in Putney, SW London – not far away.
