Margaret Goodwin, a friend and contemporary of Evelyn Dunbar's at the Royal College of Art, School of Drawing and Painting, attended the sschool from 1929 to 1933.  The two  remained  friends.  It is recorded that they holidayed together, with Mrs Gwynne-Jones (mother of Allan Gwynne-Jones), at Strawberry cottage, possibly around the time war was declared, and  in  April 1941, in the Lake District, with Roger Folley, (Dunbar's future husband) and Glynn (William) Burton.
