Places in Jane Shaw: Gallery Road
Wichwood Village is a thinly disguised Dulwich; for example, Tollgate Road is really College Road. But one name that is the same in both the Susan books and real life is Gallery Road. This is where Maggie Zimmerli ran the art gallery and also where Bill and Susan rode around delivering newspapers when Bill took over Timmy's paper route for a few days in A Job for Susan.
