I had a walk past Holland Villa today and it was good to see that the house name was on the porch of the old cottage, they have certainly made a nice job of the new extension that has been added to the old cottage

I did have a look at the 1911 Street Index when I was in the Archives today and there was no record of a Holland Villa in Bodafon Street or a John Williams living there
The one person named at Holland Villa Bodafon Road was Arthur Ern  Jones an assistant teacher, perhaps John Williams was a lodger there.   
The reporter may have been mixing up the names of the streets as well as mixing their drinks.       Z**
