    I don’t know yet. Annoyingly, the Booth surveys rarely give names. I suppose the thing to do would be to check the ERs and try to ID him.

    I think I may have tried it before and drawn a blank. I’ll give it another go later today.

      You’re welcome, Larry. Of course, it’s almost certain that some vegetable produce came into Broad Street from the provinces and ended up at Spitalfields Market. I did once find a press notice about an L. & N. W. R. agent operating out of Spitalfields, but I can’t remember the exact details and I was unable to locate it yesterday when I looked.
