Cheeky sacked chauffeur lived here.

Location: 16 Drayson Mews, Kensington, London

Description: This is where a cheeky chauffeur lived. He was sacked on the spot because he only ever cleaned half the car he drove. The side his boss got it on!

He regularly picked the man up at he newspaper seller outside High Street Kensington station.

On this one particular day his boss was waiting on the other side of the road for him, and sacked him on the spot.

Sydney Creamer, chairman of Creamer Jaguar (here at street level), lived nearby in number 12 Drayson Mews. He wrote about his neighbours in 1996.
