  1. I would actually be somewhat surprised if Wyndham was a Guardian – or rather Manchester Guardian – reader in the 1930s. At the time, it was definitely a northern English newspaper, with only limited circulation (though apparently a reasonably high reputation) in southern England. Indeed, the situation was still the case into the 1950s, when my parents had to have it specifically on order from a local newsagent in order to get it. Though the Observer was completely separate from the Guardian until about twenty years ago, and always published in London.

    Though I expect that even a Manchester Guardian or Observer reader could have made that mistake – if, say, they had little personal interest in the Soviet Union and had skipped the relevant inside pages.
