Ah right - yep, I've checked my loans history on the library website and that's the one
I wasn't familiar with that incident, tho' when I read the chapter there was something very vaguely familiar about it. It took place well before I was born, but it may be that I heard it mentioned by family when I was a youngster. As I said, the extended family lived all round that area - Lawrence St, Havelock St, Roxburgh St. White St and they all congregated in my grandmother's house at 295 Byres Road on the 1st floor corner flat.
I just know my grandmother was there in 1935 as that was the address she gave when reporting her brother's death. Checked the voters rolls and they seem just to have been there for the 1 year, but would have known the Millers as everyone knew their neighbours back them. The Millers were there for years according to the voter's rolls. I can well believe it would have caused a sensation at the time, and no doubt my family would have spoken about it for years afterwards.
