Jean Court in Bristol - between 1927 and 1934

from Living in the lane, page 5:

On one evening [at St. Mary's Redcliffe church] mother gave me some jelly babies thinking they might keep me quiet but unfortunately I had to drop them and they rolled all about into the aisle making an awful noise right in the middle of the sermon. Mother could have killed me. At last however the service would draw to a close and when Mr Morgan the organist crashed out with the triumphant final chords we were able to make our escape.
