It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the creator of The Labyrinth of East London Lore, Dr T., has passed away. Helping people through his website gave him no end of pleasure. If you had contact with him and would like to leave a message, please send us an e-mail here.


Not much is known about Isaac Beresford Mackenzie except that he was a merchant and a partner in the firm Mackenzie Brothers, which owned a hardware store and served as iron and brass founders, engineers, blacksmiths, brickmakers, builders and contractors.

He was elected to the East London Town Council in July 1908 to represent Ward 4. He did not seek re-election after he retired on rotation in February 1909.
