Swimming: V

From Ian Coster, Friends in Aspic (London: John Miles, 1939) pp. 130–1. Ian Coster, a young journalist from New Zealand who wanted to meet Shaw, sought him out at the Royal Automobile Club, where for years he regularly swam before breakfast, only giving up the practice in the late 1930s. Elsewhere Coster makes it clear that his report on Shaw’s routine must be dated after the Shaws had exchanged their Adelphi Terrace flat for one in Whitehall Court in 1927.
