Why did the narrator of the story want to forget the address?
The narrator remembered an address her mother had given her once before the war started. She was told by her mother that the valuables were transferred to this place. Her mother’s acquaintance Mrs. Dorling lived there. Post-war, the narrator wanted to see her mother’s belongings and so visited Mrs. Dorling’s place, however, she was shocked to see the way in which they were stored in her house. She felt very bad in the atmosphere even when she was surrounded by the things she wanted to see so desperately. The ugly furniture and the muggy smell that hung there seemed unpleasant. The antiques, it seemed, had lost their value in an unfamiliar surrounding away from her mother. She, therefore, resolved to forget the address and move on.
