    According to the National Archives site, this photo is of a Jacob Minsky at 32 Christian St. No date is given. However there is apparently another photo featuring him at a workshop in the same street, dated circa 1910.

      As just posted, this doesn't appear to be Julius but Jacob Minsky. Might be related though; if the 1910 date is correct, perhaps his son?

      Is there a list of members of the Berner Street club? I wonder whether any Ritzler's were members? I believe they came from Germany originally. But I'm not sure whether they were Jewish or not.
      I did once try to compile a list of those mentioned in the press as being members, but it's far from definitive, or complete. I don't think there were any Ritzlers though.

        Jacob was certainly there in 1911. Aged 34, so unlikely to have been running a business in 1888.

          Jacob died in 1924, but seems to have lingered in the directories until at least 1938.

            Here's the other pic. I guess Jacob would be at the back on the left.

              Rob,

              Was it a trimmings shop at the front and a workshop at the rear, do you think?

                I have no idea, Gary. All I know of tailoring is that trousers ride up with wear, supposedly.

                    According to Booth's researcher in June, 1887, the occupier of 36, Berner Street was a railway carman who had 'been laid up for some time'. William Mortimer died in March, 1889, aged 49, so he may well have been continuously ill between 87 and his death.

                      Working for the LNWR’s main agent, Charles Lechmere was also a ‘railway carman’. Perhaps he and Bill were ex-colleagues/mates and CAL occasionally popped in with a few grapes to cheer his old mucker up.��

                        Here's the blurb from the NA website;

                        "Tailor's workshop of Harris Chaimofsky, Christian Street, London, c.1910. Harris Chaimofsky is at the right. Standing at the back (left) is Jacob Minsky, visiting the workshop at the time the picture was taken"

                          Ah, so it’s his neighbour’s workshop? Perhaps it was the Minsky family who donated both photos to the NA.

                            After William's death, Fanny Mortimer nee Skipp married David Piggott in 1893. By 1901 she's a widow and living with her son John Mortimer. Ditto 1911. I think she died 1918.

                              She moved to Poplar and was living on her own means by 1901.

                              Where was she in ‘91?
