W G Davis

 .. of 60 Colombo Road, llford, and then 100 Felbrigge Road, Goodmayes, was a successful teacher of the fretted instruments in the llford Forest Gate and Romford areas 0f Essex who flourished from soon after 1900 up to 1936.

He sold a high- class well-made banjo which bore his name and address as "maker" but the characteristics of these instruments seem to indicate they were made for him by J. G. Abbott. He moved from Felbrigge Road in April 1930 and no banjos appear to have been sold by him after this date.

Do you have a banjo by this maker? can you supply us some images?
