Imagine my surprise on opening the Saturday Dominion Post to see the lurid account of my great-great-uncle Alec Begg’s divorce recounted 100 years after it took place.
The Truth was known for its love of the sensational and Alec’s divorce provided plenty of material. You can read Tina White’s account of this “Music Merchant’s Marital Miseries” here. I was pleased to see Meet Me at Begg’s get a mention even though I was misquoted. Alec and a (subsequent) wife adopted a boy not a girl.
