Ernö Goldfinger (2)

In looking up about Ernö Goldfinger the day before yesterday, it caught my eye that he had stayed with the Terrys during the war.   I wondered if this was anything to do with Quinlan Terry and indeed it was.   His parents were friends of the Goldfingers and on the outbreak of war they stayed in a house designed by Lubetkin in the grounds of Whipsnade Zoo.  I like the idea of the middle-aged Hungarian and the earnest schoolboy proto-classicist in amongst the elephants.
