the unusual building which is mid-right on the second picture is the same building in the first post ... so it's definitely the same location
The two buildings appear quite different. Apart from having completely different frontages (position of windows, doors, different balustrade), in the first one the land slopes up to less than six feet below the front of the building, in the second the stilts have the front of the building at a good twelve feet above the ground. There are two men standing next to the left hand side of the building in picture one which they couldn't do in picture two.

Nellie d,

Bit of a typo with the author it shold be Rubenhold.

Found it on BorrowBox, thanks for the info. Most of my mother's side of the family were from the worst slums around Spitalfields, Shoreditch and Islington throughout the 19th century so I will find this very interesting.

Technical Help / Re: Pinning a Website to the Start Menu of Windows 10

Matt,

Since I looked last night, I have had this month's Windows Updates including what looks like an overhaul of Edge, and you are right the option that you want appears to have been removed, probably because it's not something that is much used. As Debra say, I'm not sure why you are not using bookmarks, its what they're there for.

Hi,

You can see the individual service for HMS Easton here
https://www.naval-history.net/xGM-Chrono-10DE-HMS_Easton.htm

And you can see the convoy dates for HMS Swale here (there is no individual service for this ship on this site)

https://www.naval-history.net/xDKEscorts15Fr-River3.htm

You will have to match up your father's service dates with the above to see if he qualifies. If he does match up and you have his service number, then it's just a case of filling out the medal application form, sending it off and waiting.

London and Middlesex / Re: St Martin in the Field burial record
« on: Saturday 04 April 20 21:08 BST (UK)  »
I think it's the burial ground where the interment took place. There were several for the church during the 18th and start of the 19th century. NOG would be the New Old burial Ground, and TG (not SG see the S in Sarah and St on the image) would be the Tavistock burial Ground (in Drury Lane).

Occupation Interests / Re: brass moulder - tinker?
« on: Friday 20 March 20 21:48 GMT (UK)  »
Wasn't aware that there was anything such as a Brass moulding Factory. A Brass Moulder (and also Iron Moulders) typically worked in Foundries or large engineering companies (train works for example) making moulds into which the molten metal was poured. It was at the higher end of the skill set in a foundry. Maybe they made the moulds for the foundries. I doubt there was a connection to Tinkers.
