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.


Little is known of Doctor John L. Rubidge except that he was a medical practitioner who represented the Border on the Provincial Council in 1910.

He also became a member of the East London Town Council in February 1910 to represent Ward 1 but did not seek re-election when he retired on rotation in February 1913.
