about Harry

With 45 Notes of London coming out in the next few weeks (!!!) I thought I would introduce you to the lead character.

Her name is Harriet Small, known as Harry. The ’45 notes’ are written by her; observations on the city of London and her time there.

In the lead-up to the release of 45 Notes, I thought I’d share some Harry-isms with you. Today we’ll be looking at Harry’s opinion on Cash Converters:

Woken up in middle of night with crash banging sounds. Thought — right, we’re getting broken into. Went for hammer under bed and there was no hammer under bed. Not at home! Fright! But then thought — this is London. Fancy part of London, no less. Am sure criminals are a lot more respectable. Classier. Not just entering home because suspect you have a marijuana crop. Or just coming in to nick something — anything — to sell in order to satisfy meth habit.

No. These criminals would be high-class, looking to steal more than just your Xbox and flat screen TV to sell at Cash Converters. Criminals here would be looking for actual jewellery and not gaudy gold items, probably bought originally at Cash Converters.

(Now when I think about it, there is probably just a handful of jewellery in Adelaide’s northern suburbs but is doing the rounds like library books. Is bought from said Cash Converters: ‘nice. I like how the necklace looks like an actual piece of rope.’ Stolen from a house and then sold to Cash Converters again. Employees are like: ‘that gold rope necklace is back again. How much did we sell it for last time?’

No wonder they are known in local areas as Crime Converters.)
