William Spence's home floods, 2/2


William Spence smokes a cigarette beside the piano in his flooded home (next door to Spence's Cabins on Topanga Lane). His wife Florence was the musician and could play any tune she heard. Their son Thomas painted the "Collie Dog & Lamb" above the piano, copying a famous artist, Walter Hunt.
