    1 down, has to be Boulevard. I get Boulez, but where did the “Z” go, and what’s “DRAV” about?

      Hi Bob…

      your query seems to relate to a different crossword from the one I’ve published the solution for here. The Observer Everyman crossword is syndicated in many different publications at different times.

      But if you can reply to this with the full wording of the clue I’m sure we can help explain the answer!

    Bob, I did a Google search and found the clue: Composer, upper-class, turned up in person in street (9)

    The composer is not BOULEZ but RAVEL. ‘Upper-class’ is U, and ‘person in the street’ is BOD. Put RAVEL+U upside-down (turned up) in BOD gives BOULEVARD.

    I hope this helps…

      Thank you! I’ve made this mistake before – confident that I have solved part of the clue I can’t make the rest fit. I should have started again from scratch. It was very good of you to take the trouble.
