82 Preston Drove was constructed in 1906 and the Norrish family lived in the house until at least 1931 (according to the census). The house had another occupant by 1934. The father was John Norrish and the other name on the 1931 census was John Dennis Norrish, (Chartered accountant).

These papers were discovered by the contributor, Chris Marshall, when his family moved into 82 Preston Drove in 1986. The postcard and the advert were found under the floorboards; some bills were found behind the meter board.
