Photograph of Richard Suter in the back garden of the
                              family home at 10 Highweek Road, Tottenham, with an
                                                inscription on the back

                              The inscription, dated April 4 , is addressed to William
                              Peirce junior and his family, and was given to them in
                              1954.  Apparent remains of a world war two Anderson
                              air  raid shelter  appears  behind  Suter. The  photograph
                              may  have  marked  his  90   birthday  -  the  number  90
                              seems to be written in the bottom left hand corner, and
                              the year 1954 fits.  An outhouse, and the remains of a
                              shelter, seem to be behind a boundary fence, hence next
                              door  to  10  Highweek  Road.    There  was  probably
                              another such assemblage in the back garden of no.10 –
                              most people seem to have set up such things during the

                              Exactly  when  Suter’s  eyesight  deteriorated  badly  is
                              unknown.    Images  of  Suter  in  his  advanced  years  do
                              not  show  him  wearing  spectacles:  surgery  was
                              available  for  cataracts,  so  they  are  unlikely  to  have
