A J Padgett

Anyone have any information about this publisher? I have a considerable number in the 'Haven' series which feature views of Canvey Island in Essex. They are all nice real photo type views. I know that he (?) also produced views of Benfleet, Leigh and Southend as well and puts an address of Leigh-on-...

Re: Dealers' pencilled marks. Agh!

Re: Ships - the Ellora

I have found on the web that there was an Ellora built in 1911 on the Clyde for the British India Steam Navigation - it was scrapped and broken up in India in 1938 - is this the same one, I wonder? - it was a hospital ship during the 1st world war, so could have appeal to family members/researchers ...
