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.


Very little is known about Algernon Parker other than that he was a commercial traveller and at one stage proprietor of the Commercial Hotel at East London.

He was elected for Ward 1 in December 1911 but resigned in July 1912. He returned to the Council in 1923 and served until 1927.
