Old-time homosexual

A Hollywood style portrait of the curate Richard Blake Brown in 1929 In 1927, Richard Blake Brown discussed homosexual sex with his father Harold. Richard was a newly-ordained 26-year old parson, unhappily ensconced in the vicarage at Portsea. Harold was an expatriate American who had invented the power signalling system for the London Tube.
