In the late '60's my mother & I had moved to Somerset. School holidays would often be spent at my Aunts house in Raynes Park. I was not 'a good traveller', at that age. I suffered very badly from motion sickness, & any journey on a bus or coach over a couple of miles was distressing. The long trip from Mid Somerset on a coach was a nightmare. The sight of the Hoover Building meant that the ordeal was nearly over, & a great relief.
