^^^Very interesting story.
I'm surprised at the size of his mansion in Berkeley Square.....85 rooms!!


Love the night photos also.
Especially the one of SARDI'S.

Last week I watched 'Sunset Boulevard' on TCM.
In the scene where Norma Desmond takes Joe Gillis to a haberdasher for new clothes, you can clearly see SARDI'S across the street.

I've heard the building is still there (I think it's a porn shop now).


Here are a couple more photos.
