@ Chapel Arts, Lower Borough Walls, Bath.
Starting 7.30 pm.
Always an inspirational night of sax playing ….
Please let give the date to your family and friends as early as poss….
From about 1878 until the early 1890’s Ellen Magrath and her spinster daughter, also Ellen, lived in the South Lodge.
Ellen was the widow of a mounted exciseman and had previously lived in Dawlish.
Another of Ellen’s daughters, Victoria, had married and she lived with her daughter Louise in a flat just along past Pulteney Bridge in 12 Grove Street.
One of Ellen’s sons, Thomas, had retired into Bath after many years service in the Royal Navy, including time as a Quartermaster attached to Livingstone’s expedition up the Zambesi.
Please find attached a composite of some of the shots that I took.
With best wishes

Saxophone legend and Exeter resident Raphael Ravenscroft dies aged 60
RAPHAEL Ravenscroft, the British pop legend who organised a charity gala concert in Exeter in memory of Nicole Hartup, has died at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital.
My late and still mourned great friend Gypie Mayo always recalled jamming with him and doing a great rendition of ‘Fool On The Hill.’
Very sad I never met the man who inspired millions including me!
AS someone who has written a book called Blowout The Jamaician Kings Of The Sax with tracks by The Skatalities’ founders Tommy McCook,Roland Alphonso,Cedric IM Brooks and Dean Frazer maybe I should move to Nice France??
