#TOOCOOLTuesday! NOT THE HOUSE that JACK built, but GEORGE. George Cushing that is, Peter Cushing's father. George was a quantity surveyor for Purley District Council, who bought the land this house sits on, and also designed and planned the building of it! The Cushing family moved in 1926, and Peter born in 1913, his brother David three years older, lived there for many years.The house has now been lovingly renovated, spruced up, to enhance it's Edwardian style by the charming Camlett family, who certainly appreciate the Cushing connection of the house! Only this July a BLUE PLAQUE was placed on the house, to celebrate its connection, to Peter Cushing.
ABOVE: HOW THE HOUSE LOOKED, JUST A FEW YEARS AGO, BEFORE THE CAMLETT FAMILY, WONDERFUL RESTORATION!

THE LONDON BLUE PLAQUE SCHEME prides itself on celebrating extraordinary people at the places where they lived and worked.This beautiful house on St James Road, Purley is the second Cushing home to be awarded a Blue Plaque. The first was erected at the home of Peter and his wife, Helen Cushing in Whitstable, Kent.
