J Parslow - Banjo Maker
The Parslow family of Kingston upon Thames appears in my family history. Ebay have a very nifty facility where it will send you an email when something of a given name is listed. The photos of this wonderful Banjo appeared on Ebay recently. This banjo was handmade at the end of the 19th Century by James Parslow 1850-1920.
There are other photos on my Flickr album, including one of the stamp from shop in Hammersmith where this Banjo was sold. By looking at a trade directory for London to see when this shop was trading we can get an idea of when it was sold.
