References to a John Jones, of Lea Bridge Road, London, as a "lone" maker of banjos have been discovered but apart from the fact that he died in the 1920s and his workshop was in the garden of his house, nothing else has been unearthed except that making banjos was his full-time occupation.
How and where he sold the banjos he made is not known.
November 2012: John Jones (b 1861 in Bethnel Green) and his son John CA Jones (b 1884 in Bethnel Green) were both resident, in 1911, at 196 Lea Bridge Road and both recorded as chairmakers.
Do you have a pre 1940's banjo by this maker? can you supply us some images?
