        Many thanks for posting this invaluable information, Chris. Minor point of clarification; the "Krosminski" of 47 Langdale Street was actually "Abraham Kosminski", a 38 year-old tailor in 1888. He died of Bright's Disease in 1893.

          Hi Scott
          Many thanks for the comment - much appreciated
          I should have added that this is a literal transcription without editing even where I suspect there had been an error in the original
          The name is given as Krosminski (see below)

              Reynolds Newspaper

              Chris, thank you for posting the information. I notice the listing from Plumber's Row: 34 Spiegel Jacob. Employs 10 men and 3 girls. 18 years experience. General slop work. Researcher Charles Van Onselen mentioned an 1887 robbery at that address. He told of an article in Reynold's Newspaper "Wholesale Robbery of Overcoats" 12 February 1888, which involved one of the men in the orbit he was studying, Haskel Brietstien alias Adolph Goldberg as well as two others also taken into police custody named named Cohen and Levy. I don't see any Reynolds Newspapers in Casebook Press Reports section, but I have seen a few articles from that paper appear here and there, in various threads.

              I do not have access, or do not know how to go about finding that article. Does anyone have the ability to retrieve that article in question and post it here on Casebook? I would certainly appreciate it.

                Hi Roy
                Thanks for the message
                I don't have access to archives of Reynolds but there is an online reference to a complete series held at Bradford University

                It may be worth contacting them to see if they can help

                  I can post the article up for you, where would you like it?

                    Since it is about the robbery of a tailoring shop, you could post it right here, unless Chris objects. Otherwise simply start a new thread titled Reynolds Newspaper report. Do it however you like. I appreciate your effort very much.

                      I'll put it here Roy, I think it can be moved if anyone feels it's not in the right place.

                            Many thanks for the comment - much appreciated
                            I should have added that this is a literal transcription without editing even where I suspect there had been an error in the original
                            The name is given as Krosminski (see below)
                            I am interested in the entry above KROZMINSKI/Kozminski
                            the name COZINSKIE??
                            sharing the same address, does that mean they worked together in the same house, and/or also lived together?
                            Thank you for your help so far, I am finding the posts very useful for my own research.

                              In the absence of Chris - as I interpret it, this is a list of tailors' workshops, so presumably this was a house with two workshops.

                              You can download a PDF file of the whole book, which contains some additional information, here:

                              There is also a link to a catalogue entry that provides a little extra guidance.

                              In the 1891 census, there is only one household (Abraham's) at that address, occupying 4 rooms.
