Description: Arthur Haynes (1914 1966) was an English comedian and star of The Arthur Haynes Show, a comedy sketch series produced by ATV from 1957. Haynes's most popular character was a working class tramp created by screenwriter Johnny Speight (who wrote the iconic BBC Television working class sitcom Till Death Us Do Part).

Speight said he got the idea of the tramp from a real tramp who climbed into his Rolls Royce when it was stopped at a traffic light.

He lived here from 1963 to his death from a heart attack in November 1966.
