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?
