  1. Hi HoS...pleased you've got your head around it...links below may well be of interest. http://www.witness.group.shef.ac.uk/interview-edward-patnick/ https://www.amazon.co.uk/Confessions-Junk-Dealer-Edward-Patnick/dp/1907998136 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://kehillatkernow.com/newsletter/Kol-Kehillat-Kernow-09-08.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwiJ5cqgk6buAhUkQkEAHT0XBX04KBAWMAl6BAgCEAE&usg=AOvVaw0JA19Nggt72oicDcK57n8_ If you're interested in finding out what happened to them afterwards... you have a good chance through Ancestry. I've had a look and there are a few people with Lapatnick/Patnik's in their tree, UK, USA and Australia. ..some of them have information on the family prior to coming to the UK....the only snag being that most of the tree owners haven't been on since early last year. Unfortunately I dont have the international subscription required to view the records. You could also try FB...I think this lady in the US was married to Leonard Lapatnick, descended from Hyman Michael. https://m.facebook.com/lapatnick
  2. Seem to be going during WW1, in 1926 they were based at Queens Road. Between 1881 and 1911 there is a Thomas Wales, Joinery tools manufacturer at 4 Talbot Crescent....with sons John and Albert Wales having the same trade.
  3. Rules are rules as you say....it obviously hasn't sunk in in Germany though. "Numbers provided to German newspaper Handelsblatt by the country’s economics ministry show the country’s government is subject to 74 infringement proceedings by the European Commission for failing to implement EU regulations properly in German law. German Green party politician Markus Tressel told the newspaper Germany was now “bottom of the class” for following EU rules and far from the “model pupil” it was sometimes portrayed as. The infringements against Germany, which can be started for delayed implementation or inadequate conversion into national laws, relate to policy areas like air pollution, water quality and fire protection. The new statistics echo the latest available EU-wide figures on enforcement actions from the end of 2016, provided by the European Commission, which found Germany joint top with Spain. Those countries were followed closely by Belgium, Greece, Portugal and France – all longstanding fans of the European project." https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/angela-merkel-germany-breaks-more-eu-rules-worst-bottom-class-a8198271.html
  4. Thanks....this should be interesting. It appears to have been syndicated in the US papers, unfortunately I don't have the international subscription to view them.
  5. Hillsbro....could I ask what you are using to post the pics?.... as my photobucket account doesn't seem to work anymore, and I've turned up a good piece I'd like to post.
  6. The beet sugar situation is a farce, France is the largest producer of SB, and traditionally the price has been kept high....this has been whittled away over recent years so is not as attractive as a crop as it once once. Environmentally it is one of the worst crops there is for soil damage, It would be better for us to shut beet down and shift to less damaging crops.
  7. Aaron Lapatnick appears to have been a good student, he was awarded a grant for school tuition at The Sheffield Central School in September 1908, his previous school was the Bow St, Mixed School.
  8. If referenda are such a poor tool why do other European countries have them for joining the EU or ratifying treaties?...whilst I agree about cheating and lying both sides were guilty, as to Aaron Banks the police found no case to answer. Remainers...The Lib Dems and the 'Better Together campaign were both fined for electoral irregularities.
  9. Financial Services are under no serious threat, Indy and Guardian were predicting 100-200,000 job losses in London, in actual fact around 6000 have moved, many of those German ex-pats returning home according to Der Spiegel, those jobs in the UK have already been replaced, London employing more now than in 2016. https://www.cityam.com/london-retains-finance-jobs-as-brexit-fails-to-deliver-blow-to-the-city/
  10. The Irish fishermen are saying they've been sold out. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/irish-fishing-communities-will-be-disappointed-by-brexit-deal-taoiseach-says-1.4445321
  11. If they do it's good....but the fact remains that it's a mature market, if Carrefour buy them from another source the original suppliers produce goes unsold, where do they sell them? Absolutement.
  12. I doubt much is from Ireland, they only produce 19,000 tons a year for the whole of the world's market. Scotland sells more than that to the USA.
  13. Of course it is....it's not like the old Castle Market where stuff is bought and sold on the spot, it's bought by forward contract years in advance.
  14. I quite agree, but the point I was making was that to break into markets in a big way takes years to achieve...in the case of Morocco they are set potentially to gain significantly and quickly if European exporters default. Tesco ( I don't know about others) have been increasing buying for some time and Morocco's exports to the UK have doubled in the last 4/5 years. Hardly surprising if Dover is the logjam....but remember the stuff that is in there is the stuff from existing suppliers sold on forward contracts, new suppliers trying to break into it will not find it easy....if they do manage to get in where do the existing suppliers sell their produce?
  15. Actually there isn't, at least in the immediate future. The current European market is a mature market built on forward contracts, to break into them will take time, if it was easy or possible they would be in there now. I was reading an article in El Pais and the Mayor of this particular Spanish region was painfully aware that almost 80% of his produce goes into UK supermarkets. I certainly don't want to see farmers and distributors suffer wherever they are and whilst there will be some difficulties at first it will get sorted for the mutual benefit of all.
  16. Very much doubt it to be honest, Tesco already import large amounts of most salad produce from Morocco already, it all comes in to Portsmouth, so is not dependent on cross channel difficulties.
  17. It seems filecutting was a local speciality, there was an Ecclesfield File Cutters Association that apparently had a hand in the election of Sir Frederick Mappin as MP in 1896. Prior to the file cutting the Fawleys were nailmakers, there was a libel case in 1869 between brothers James and Charles Fawley that was a bit acrimonious. There is a lot in the British Newspaper Archive about Fawleys in business all over the area, but I just found one that you may be very interested in, apparently Arthur Fawley borrowed £100 from his brother in law Walter Pearson in order to take the George & Dragon....Walter had to take him to Court to get it back. The Judge said Arthur had committed "wilful and corrupt perjury in court"
  18. True to an extent, but South Yorkshire, and Sheffield in particular had the Meadowhall option on a plate until SCC decided to actively campaign against it.
  19. Arthur James Fawley took the tenancy over from Edward Spencer in 1921, the magistrates also allowed for some minor alterations to the pub....however Edward Fawley died there on December 15th, 1926....my assumption is that Arthur is Edward's son. The pub was closed in 1931. It was owned by Tennant Brothers. It came up for sale...on account of Mr A Fawley leaving the district and the redundancy of the license. Having had a quick look I can't see any evidence that Edward was the landlord, he lived there as an old man but Arthur was the tenant. When Edward died he was the owner of 10 cottages on Yew Lane Ecclesfield plus several packets of land. Another report I found from 1917 said.... "Sapper Arthur James Fawley, Royal Engineers, son of Edward Fawley of Yew Lane is in hospital in France suffering from dangerous wounds in the left eye" He was hospitalised later the same year with trench fever.
  20. Between (at least) 1886 and 1900 it was the home of Edward Winder who managed the estates of the Duke of Norfolk. In 1907 it came up for sale or let, described as 10 rooms with bath and WC, hot and cold water. In 1912 the occupant was advertising for a manservant with knowledge of Darraq cars. In 1918 the home of Dutch flautist Marritz Benavente. In 1931 the home of Dr & Mrs Murphy.
  21. That's not correct, certainly in trade volume terms...in 2000 UK exported 53% of its goods and services to the EU...it fell steadily and in 2016 accounted for just over 42%, although tbf it has gone up slightly to 44% in the last full trading year. Those figures are from the Office of National Statistics and the House of Commons Library.
  22. Actually the meeting was writ large in the Irish Times, Der Spiegel, Die Welt, Suddeutsche Zeitung, Paris Match, Le Figaro, Le Monde, La Stampa, La Republicca and virtually every other European newspaper.
  23. That's not quite correct, Toyota haven't decided where or where not to make pure electric vehicles yet, they have though said Burnaston is more likely to be making hybrid vehicles after 2027....so perhaps not as particularly bad as you suggest.
