Auction of the paper stock of Janssen and Roberts
A broadside advertisement reads: "By auction, to be sold on Thursday next being the 16th of this present July, the remainder of the stock in partnership between Janssen and Roberts, at their late dwelling-house in Dean’s Court, the south side of St. Pauls, consisting of Genoa papers according to the particulars underneath." The date in the ESTC record is purely speculative; July 16th was a Thursday in many years during the 18th century; 1750 is only one possibility. Extensive searching has found no other record of the partners or the auction.

It is not a gargoyle over the entrance arch to Albert Mews, it is a likeness of Prince Albert himself.

Dukes Place, EC3A
Until his death in 1767, Daniel Nunes de Lara worked from his home in Dukes Street as a Pastry Cook. It was not until much later the street was renamed Dukes Place. Daniel and his family attended the nearby Bevis Marks synagogue for Sephardic Jews. The Ashkenazi Great Synagogue was established in Duke Street, which meant Daniel’s business perfectly situated for his occupation as it allowed him to cater for both congregations.

Some Brief Notes on Hawthorne Close / Hawthorne Street
My great-grandparents lived in the last house on the south side of Hawthorne Street, no 13, and my grandmother Alice Knopp and her brothers and sisters grew up there. Alice Knopp married Charles Flewers, from nearby Hayling Road, and moved to Richmond, Surrey, where I was born. Leonard Knopp married Esther Gutenberg and lived there until the street was demolished in the mid-1960s, moving on to Tottenham. Uncle Len worked in the fur trade, then ran a pet shop in, I think, the Kingsland Road.
From the back garden, one could see the almshouses in the Balls Pond Road. There was an ink factory at the end of the street, which I recall as rather malodorous.

Brentham Garden Suburb in Ealing was the first garden suburb to be built on ‘Co-partnership’ principles and was an inspiration for the later, larger and more famous Hampstead Garden Suburb. This photograph was taken looking across Brentham Way to the corner with Fowler’s Walk (2014)

Drayton Green Farm, West Ealing at the end of the 19th century. This was a hundred acre dairy farm, worked in 1881 by Samuel Goddard and his wife Elizabeth. By 1913, the farm had disappeared, the land bisected by railway sidings and some houses built. In 1932 part of the former farm became the Drayton Green running track.

Fiveways - the junction of Scotch Common and Argyle Road (1902) Early in the twentieth century parts of Ealing were still very rural and this scene was taken in 1902 at a spot known locally at that time as Fiveways. The houses in the distance are in Kent Gardens and are some of the few which were constructed by Henry de Bruno Austin as part of Castle Hill Estate before he went bankrupt.
