No:27 Upton Park
Known as Rosina
The property was built in the side grounds of Spring Villa
in the early 1960's for
Mrs. Dalzie Comyn. Dalzie who had grown up
in Spring Villa (no:29) then moved across for the last 20 years of
her life. She was the centrepin of the Christmas round of cocktail
parties in the 1960/70s.
She died on 29th January 1982 aged 68 years
- at the time she was considered
to be the resident with most years in the Park.
After her death the house was vacant for a while and then bought by
Pauline Rourke who subsequently became chairwoman of UPPA.
