A retired man makes a trip to London to visit his cousin and to investigate their shared family history.

Neville is captivated by the story of his distant aunt, a Victorian woman who set up a school for sickly children. But visiting the part of London where he grew up stirs up memories of his own childhood and personal history, causing him to re-assess his outlook in the present day.

Part of the Storycuts series, this short story was previously published in the collection The Atmospheric Railway.
