Census Lookup and Resource Requests / Re: Missing wife & daughter in 1861
« on: Friday 13 August 21 13:11 BST (UK)  »
I am researching East London photographers and have Thomas Henry Larmuth (Born 5 Aug 1832 in Shoreditch). The son of Alfred William Larmuth.

In 1867 he is shown as a Photographer in Tunbridge Wells and in 1874 at 18 High Street, Tunbridge Wells as a Confectioner and Photographer.

There is reference to a Thomas Henry Larmuth in 1882 as a Patentee of Fruit ales, Champagne at Pembury road & Orchard house, and 18 Dalston lane, Hackney (is he the same person?)

 Thomas Henry Larmuth of 4 Glenarm Road, Clapton died in 1915.

Would appreciate any further information.

Re: "Frank Wakefield occupied 137 High St. Brentford from 1905 - 1920". This was Frank Graham Wakefield. He was the son of Frank Wakefield, who was a Photographer and had a studio in Ealing. Another son, Edward Arthur Wakefield was also a Photographer.

Family History Beginners Board / Trying to find Joseph Colonel Stodare - magician
« on: Saturday 20 March 21 10:04 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if you could help me. I am researching Essex Photographers and have a John Rayne/Raine (b, 1864 in Scarborough, Yorkshire) married to a Josephine Caroline Stodare (b. 1865 in Liverpool). Her father is shown as Joseph Stodare – (occupation: Actor) and mother as Elizabeth (b. 1844 in London).

The only references I can find to the Stodare name is a Joseph Colonel Stodare (b. 28 June 1831 in Liverpool – d, 22 Oct 1866). I understand he was a Victorian magician, who worked a theatre called the Egyptian Hall in London, and invented the ‘Stodare Egg’. Although most references record that he was born in Liverpool, there is reference that this name was only a stage name and he was born Jack Inglis in Scotland?
His death index is recorded under the name Joseph C Stodare and his will as Colonel Stodare.

Does anybody have any information on Joseph Colonel Stodare and if this was his birth name.
Thanking you for your assistance,

Thanks for taking the trouble to post it

I would be most grateful if anyone has access to the newspaper websites.
If so could they possibly reproduce the following article from the
The Bioscope newspaper, dated 26th June 1913 as follows-
“... At Walthamstow. The Arcadia, Wood Street, Walthamstow, popularly known as the Blue Hall, because of its interior decoration, is being demolished. ..."

I only have this snippet and need the rest of the article.
Anything else on the Arcadia Picture Palace • 199-210 Wood Street, Walthamstow (opened 1912) appreciated.
Thanking you for your help,
Regards - Bob

I have already trawled google and have Graces Guide and Old Bailey info. I am trying to find more about his cycle business and what cycles he may have made.
