Dennis, Leonard with Uncle Alfred

With Al Brain's Family at Tropics, Los Angeles
  Dennis and Leonard spent nearly all the four days with (Uncle) Al(fred). On the first day they went for tea and in the evening Al and Straussie took them out to dinner at 'Tropics' in Los Angeles. As they sat talking afterwards Al took the opportunity to give Dennis one of his mouthpieces to use.
