  • Victorian employment

    i
    i was looking some years ago at census copies of my fathers family in London.
    one of his aunts employments was written on the census as " water musician "
    i was asked by one of my brothers what this employment was.
    i could only respond to it as a public convivence attendant ?
    ( LOL )
    does any one know what it might of been,
    certainly nothing to do with George Fredrich Handel of the time !

    thx.......

    Here you can find occupations recorded in the 1891 census

    If a waterman means 'someone who worked with or on boats usually on rivers', a water musician should mean a musician who works on a boat, like Wallace Hartley and his band in the Titanic 😉🎻

        also location was Battersea London as residence, by Latchmere baths.
        so perhaps at water spar or on the Thames.
