[The listening experience could have happened in the Glasgow area where the the Livingston family lived (Govanhill), or on  the Isle of Bute, where they were on holiday two weeks earlier as a 15 June diary entry shows] 

Tuesday 30 June … Tommy & I sat at the room window listening to an alien playing the barrel organ. We gave him a penny.
