So we can all get a better feel for Juliet’s world, I’ve posted pictures of Oakley Street, the location of a flat which Juliet loved because she could see the river (page 12) and 23 Glebe Place, which is her residence at the beginning of the book. Juliet tells Dawsey that she had to move from Oakley Street because it was bombed in 1945. Notice how close the two addresses are from eachother! (81 Oakley Street is labeled on the “Bird’s-Eye View” picture as “A” and 23 Glebe Place as “B”.)
Thanks to googlemaps and streetview!
