    photo 2009. The houses on this street have apparently been renumbered; Web sources say Ludwig Wittgenstein resided in no. 104 which is now no 154. If that is true, no. 160 probably used to be no 110. Ambrose J. Rodocanachi lived in 'Hollyhurst' in 1905 at no 110. Today's no. 110 is the Northern Lawn Tennis, Fitness & Squash Club.
