Reasons for trip

Number 2 . Ravensworth Terrace is the home of Miss Florence Smith, an unmarried teacher of pianoforte, singing and elocution. The house is old fashioned with a lot of Victorian bric a brac, suggesting that it was probably inherited from her parents.

Music lessons, at a cost of 6d, were given in the front parlour. Behind was the kitchen with a large cast iron range which would have needed black leading everyday. China is displayed on a large Welsh dresser.

Stairs lead to the bedrooms on the first floor, with a stained glass window on the first floor.

There were two bedrooms as well as a small room for the maid.
