> Hidden behind the hedges and fences at 36 St Mark's Road is a gracious
home built in 1905 or 1906 for Florence FRASER, the new bride of TB KING.
> Today it is a feature of a complex that houses East London's only Catholic
school, St Anne's Primary. Built according to Florence's taste, its date is
uncertain.
> The only evidence readily available is a letter from Dulcie FERRELL (nee
KING) in 1984. In it she recalls an order placed overseas for fencing and
gates in August 1906.
> Another letter dated March 25, 1907 bears the original names of the house,
Glen Fraser. It became known as the Nightingale's Cage honouring Florence's
singing prowess.
> The present school evolved from East London's first Catholic school in
Albany Str in 1883 which began with 63 boys and girls. Later the boys were
moved to their own school, St Anthony's.
> More history if anyone's interested, but just thought these names might
mean something to someone...
