There was a concrete sink out the back, and it was full of pans, frying pans, stock pots, saucepans, soup pots, skillets and sauté pans, that the new owners had on the list for the house clearance company to take away, until a neighbour asked them to wait and watch.
Late in the evening, a steady stream of homeless people drifted silent as shadows into the yard, to take the cooking pots, and later, under cover of dark, to bring them back and wash them out in the old sink.
Instead of turning the yard into a garage, the new owners covered it over and created a neat, trim kitchen with a gas oven and hot water, and at night, they left the street door open.
