#2005 – HJ Cottrell
Worthing, 11th July 2017.
A third CdV recently found in a Brighton junk shop.
Again, it was not easy to find out much information about HJ Cottrell, but from a bit of research, his full name – Henry Joseph – and his base – Ladywood in Birmingham – came to light.
The Old Ladywood website shows that Reservoir Road was a bustling suburban street, into which Cottrell’s business would have fitted in nicely. He lived at number 43 from 1985 to 1900.
