I have been trying to source my own copy of the Pictorial Times, so I don't have to rip off the library.

The Library and Reading rooms seem to have moved to behind the Byzantine Court, after the intallation of the Orchestra in 1857? It remained there even after the fire of 1866.

There's an unusual panoramic print of the Orchestra by Photochrom at the Handel at Crystal Palace Exhibition at the Foundling Museum.

Sorry to hear you've got the flu! I just got over it a couple of weeks ago myself... You may have caught the same bug as me... It seems to be going around quite a lot lately. Did you know: in your lifetime, you've probably breathed in some of the same oxygen atoms that were also inhaled by the great visionaries: Joseph Paxton and Baird! I hope that makes you feel better, mate.

I'm heading down LMA next to find that bloody picture of the Croydon Canal...

Hello,
There are some wonderful images of Ethardo the ball runner on this web-site that I have never seen before. I am researching a contemporary of Ethardo (who also performed as Ethair) who also performed the "globe Roulante". I would love to obtain copies of these images of Ethardo, and would like to know if yu have any further information about him. I know that he was in South Africa in 1861-2 with Hiram Franklin (an american acrobat and equestrian) and the Stevens family of acrobats. He was back in England with his family and the Stevens family, so he was lucky to not continue with Hiram Franklin. Franklin and his family were lost at sea on the way to India in 1862. Another close miss was Leon Leroy and his wife margaret (nee Stevens) who had stayed in South Africa to attend to some business with the intention of following and meeting up with Franklin in India.

There is a very good chance that my acrobat, a Frenchman Jean Klaer, learnt the globe act from a similar teacher to Ethardo, as the two were contemporaries. There are no images that are certainly of Jen performing the act. He died in 1863 in Callao Peru- so I guess there was not the chance...

The links to the person who posted these images do not seem to be working. Does anyone know how I could reach them?

I would love to obtain copies, if possible, that i would like to include in my thesis.

With the kindest regards,

Margaret Kirby (Australia)
