Happy New Year to all forum members,
I would like to ask some help for my research,
concerning the way that should exist in London,
someone has already said that in Victorian London Street Index
there is no " Libiola Street".
A few days ago the son of an old miner, who many years ago,
was invited to London, along with others, invited by
daughter of the former director of the mine,
told me that he had seen in the city of finance and its
eye on the plaque dedicated to the Libiola.
If someone can give me some more information
for further research.

Greetings to all


Buongiorno Granet,

this may be a reference to what was meant - there was (and may still be) a house in Shortlands, in the county of Kent by the name of "Libiola". This was the residence of one of the owners/managers/directors. In 1906, it was the property of a Mrs Laura Louisa Ingram Archbold, who died 4 March 1906, the widow of Ralph Skene Archbold who was involved in a transaction with William Roberts Struve concerning the Libiola Copper Mining Company on 9 April 1888.
It is highly probable that the visitor to England was invited to dinner at the owner's house and thought that the name of the house was a street name. Shortlands is located in the south eastern part of Greater London, near Bromley.

As the house is not given a street name, so I assume it was a larger property.




Cheers

I've just received Archive CD Books giant 50% off sale blurb but this link may be of interest to you, granet. Lots of street directories of London on CD:

All the best


Thanks for your interest and help Imageo.
I found on Google Book one of those
street directories, search engine google
the report because it contains the name of the manager of the mine and the name Libiola.
Now try to see.

Greetings from Granet

Hello to all forum members,
I wanted to ask if you have them in antique markets

(photographs, documents, papers, or other).
If so please contact me via MP.
Thanks Smile

Hello. Isn't the web marvelous. My great grandfather was a manager at the mine in the early 1900's. Robert Murray was from Scotland and worked there for a few years with his family. We have been trying to find any information about their time in Italy, as we don't really have much detail or pictures. Attached is a picture postcard he sent to Scotland in 1907. regards to you, Peter.
( i cant get the pic to attach here - could email it direct if req'd - its just a pic of him in 1907. )

Upload the photo to your personal album on here.

Then, underneath you will see two lines of text. Copy one of them into a new post on here and the photo should appear in your new post.

Good morning, Mr. Murray,
Thank you for having responded to this post
I'm sorry for my English is not very correct.
I saw your post on the blog "Sestri online"
and I tried to write an email but the server responded that the address does not
longer exists.
I'm trying to reconstruct the history of the mine and men
during the period of ownership English,
but here in Italy is not nothing, no pictures, no maps,
no evidence, time seems to have erased everything ..
remains only the "House of the English" which housed the mine manager
(R. Murray).
If he had any news for me please contact me.
Thank you.

Good morning
Thanks Yorkshireman, and everyone who helped me to search Libiola,
On google maps to address approximately n.64 Mayhill is a house
of light brown brick, near the right window of the house is a plaque
with an inscription, but the picture is not detailed enough
To read one.
If people who live nearby could give me an aid,
to read what is written.

Thanks to all
Granet
