Site Updates - Dando in Plymouth
- Added facts and footnotes for my gran, Ivy Alice Dando.
- Added more facts and footnotes for my great-grandfather, Charles Llewellyn Ernest Elbert Dando.
One recent discovery is that Charles worked in Bedford Street, one of the main streets in Plymouth before the Blitz destroyed most of the city centre. He can be found at No 34 in the 1923 Kelly's Directory, probably above the main shop which belonged to Webb & Son Ltd who made suitcases. The 1910 and 1914 Kelly's Directories don't mention Charles but instead, located there with Webb & Son is a firm called McDonalds Ltd who made artificial teeth. It's not known whether Charles had any associations with McDonalds or whether two dental firms being located in the same building at different times is simply a co-incidence. Of course, there's always the possibility that the building was already kitted out, making it the ideal premises for Charles Dando to move his business into.
