A very smart set of gentlemen!

 

Several people are playing Edeophones. I think these were patented in 1889, so the photo must be from after that.

 

Somebody  will know when Lachenal were at that address.

Numbers were added to the London district code (W.C. here) in 1917, so its probably before WW1. Its a good simple pointer to decide on pre and post WW1 material from the London makers. And if some of those instruments are Edeos, that sets it as probably into the late 1890s/1900s as an earliest date pointer.

 

Are we all beginning to suffer memory problems? I know I do 😕 - see page 2 of this 11 year old thread that I found on google.
