    You probably noticed this on-line picture of Borer's Passage, c. 1911, giving us a look at what is being discussed. Boerer's Passage is also mentioned in a case tried at the Old Bailey in 1863--evidently well-known for many years as an area where one could buy and sell used clothing. I doubt this route could have been unknown to a person who had lived in East London nearly their whole life.
    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for that photo and Old Bailey reference; I hadn't seen the picture, yet. Nice. Pitty that it's from 1911 and doesn't give the direction of Borer's Passage, but it's always nice to see those old pictures.

    Cheers,
    Frank

    He wasn't afraid of walking down Bucks Row or approaching a stranger there, so Charles Lechmere was braver than Robert Paul. Working as a carman would have left him in good physical condition - I wonder how big a man Charles Lechmere was.

    As several people know all too well, I can assure they are being read and commented on elsewhere.

    Which has raised a problem, that R.J. has touched on, where can the issues, pro and con, with the Lechmere candidacy be discussed by all parties?

    Whilst you need to be a member to post, anyone can read what is written here.

    I know.

    That is why I used the verb 'may'.

    Mark, I think the question is what is that double line ?

    Is it a wall, a fence, is it solid, does it have a gate?

    On Spitalfields life there is a photo of the entrance to the clothes market, sadly its from some years later and does not show where that line would be, but it does show a metal railing type fence, with a gate, could this be similar.

    It's an interesting question.

    Steve

    I agree.

    And I had made both those points myself.

    But Mark JD hasn't responded to my question about his comment accompanying the map:


    Is your comment 'Other daft garbage snipped' directed at me?
