Believe me. Yours very SincerelyLouis Wain""In 1895, the Wains moved from 16 Adrian Square to 7 Collingwood Terrace, part of Westgate Bay Avenue; Sir William [Ingram] named the terrace after his son Collingwood. Number 7 was a large corner house; later they moved to number 10, a smaller house further up the terrace, away from Margate. Louis Wain named both houses after the famous prizefighter (William Thompson 1811-1880, nicknamed Bendigo) whose reputation he so admired." (Dale, p.33)
