  2. Hi

    My Great grandfather’s family had eel pie and mash shops and dinning rooms/Establisments in Edgeware Road 3 Middle Road South Knightbridge London around 1850’s Godfree’s. I am wondering if anyone knows of any information or pictures I would be able to find regarding Godfree’s.

    Thank you,
    Kind regards,
    Donna Mills

    Does anyone know of a calendar probably printed for the year 1990 that had a photo of Pop Freeman standing outside his shoe shop with the riggings of sailing ships over the roof?
    I saw the photo in 1990 just before my elder brother
    died but as I wasn’t into genealogy then I never paid too much attention.
    So if anyone who knows if it’s existence please let me know.
    Thank you
