A house in London at Strand-on-the-Green

1st July 1831

On this day, 1st July 1831, Allan Cunningham purchased a residence at Number 21 Strand-on-the-Green, “a pretty cottage”, near Kew in London and stayed there until October 1836. It was here that he was able to entertain his scientific and adventurer friends. Thoughts of returning to Australia and its wilderness enticed him once again to return to his adopted country. The land of eucalyptus blue and wide open spaces. ((Source: Robert Heward’s Biographical Sketch of Allan Cunningham))
