Hi, my name is Larissa Gallep. I am a journalist for the Brazilian Mtv Magazine. Im writing a theme about Bob Marleys first residence in London, at 34 Ridgmount Gardens, and I wonder if you could send me some more information about the place and if possible some pictures too. I need to know how many rooms does the house have, if the original furniture is still there (from the time Bob Marley lived there), if there is any interesting story about the place, who used to live with him, if he wrote anything while he lived there and how much it cost to visit the house.
