        "Arrivals by a German Steamer"

        But that doesn't necessarily mean that those pictured were German, does it? Possibly the people in the photograph were East European Jews.

            i have to re-check the article. i think it came with some text, which might clarify what is seen in the picture.

            take care

                Thank you for posting the article, Thomas. My point of course that we would not expect all the people aboard a British flag vessel to be British, nor the people aboard an American ship to be Americans. I grant that the article talks about Germans who emigrated to London and then used the German institutions in the city. Fair enough!

                  that's true.
                  but i believe the article is quite accurate with its statements, so why show different pictures. it's not the living london style .-)
                  although i certainly agree with your opinion and think that not all of the people seen in the photo are germans, but some are i guess...atleast hans and franz .-))

                    Howie, in the beginning of your article there is reference to mathematician Charles Babbage, who was part of the reaction against German brass bands in London.

                    Musicians were amongst German immigrants, including orchestral players. There were also brass brands, the opposition to which focused on their numbers, the noise they made and the hazards which they caused to London traffic. The campaign in the 1860's had as it supporters Charles Dickens, Thomas Carlyle, Babbage, MP Michael Bass. as well as sections of the press. This led to the passage of the Street Music (Metropolis) Act of 1864. Still the music continued and another effort developed in the 1890's leading to the founding of the Assoc for the Supression of Street Noises.

                        Hi Thomas,

                        I enjoyed the article you posted, which was a tour of London East and West.

                          Composer George Friedrich Handel was the most famous German musician to make his home in London.

                          A short video clip of my favorite song of his. (click)

                            Those bands really were a nuisance:

                              Many of the sugar refineries in the East End were staffed by German sugar bakers. The one in Breezers Hill for example was operated entirely by Hanoverians, it would seem.
