No 33 Friars Street ( then number 17) decorated for the Coronation of Edward VIII in 1902. The figures on the doorstep are Leonard Butler Wrightson and his wife Fanny. He was a parliamentary election agent and had a large family. They may well have rented the house from 1894 after the Henry Cronin Pratt scandal.
