This sounds interesting. Arthur Sullivan toyed with the affections of two Sydenham ladies. They were sisters, daughters of the engineer John Scott Russell who lived in what was then Sydenham Hill Road (now upper Kirkdale). It sounds particularly cruel, as he started his affair with the second sister while still seeing the first.
