DYK for William H. Herriman[edit]

Temple[edit]

Just for the avoidance of doubt, I don't have a problem with Temple per se. I've written up H. H. Risley, James Tod and several other biographical articles that deal with similar British colonial characters. It has long been my intention to improve the Temple article - I just happen to have picked the week when my JSTOR access is limited (something I only found out after starting). This is not a quick DYK job, and nor should it be. - Sitush (talk) 22:37, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

A quick DYK job? Philafrenzy (talk) 23:09, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Janey Ironside[edit]

In view of your sudden interest, I've just added you to the DYK nom! Edwardx (talk) 22:40, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I didn't have a chance to add much. I will look at a fair use photo. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:08, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, a photo is always great. Edwardx (talk) 23:37, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Phrase and Fable[edit]

Glad you liked my change. The trouble is I don't know how many editions Brewers edited, and who edited earlier editions than the ones stated. Slightnostalgia (talk) 15:33, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

It's fine. I often make similar lists and just fill them in as I get the info, or someone else does it. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:27, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Lady Jane[edit]

Lady Jane is in the Queue. 50 Carnaby Street nominated. Edwardx (talk) 18:24, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I have been away for the weekend. The death of Violet Boofty by gas is interesting as that was the MO of John Christie who was connected to the building later and was in London at that time. It could do with a longer lead and more on several of the clubs. Also, what was there earlier and during the gaps? I have more on Litvinoff. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:45, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, there are issues, and the hooks could be better, but the deadline was fast approaching and that was my first priority. Will try to do some more! Edwardx (talk) 00:30, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
It wasn't a complaint. Litvinoff is unexpectedly long for a man with very few verifiable facts, no personal quotes, no publications and no official records that I can find! Philafrenzy (talk) 00:37, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Was more trying to express my own disappointment that I couldn't match the quality of the Lady Jane hook. Every time I look, Litvinoff expands... Where will it end? You can see why someone wants to write a book about him. Good night. Edwardx (talk) 01:08, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
I will definitely buy that book, if it ever comes out. It will be a biography without any contribution from the subject. The Welsh cottage is interesting. I note the developing drugs industry in the area later busted by Operation Julie. Draw your own conclusions. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:19, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

50 Carnaby Street[edit]

Once it has had its 15 minutes on the main page, I think you could quite reasonably start new articles for four of the clubs. Lady Jane is already on 3539 hits today. Edwardx (talk) 10:38, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, it's amazing what fertile sources there are for some of this pop culture stuff if you dig a bit. Don't ask whether they are reliable sources... Philafrenzy (talk) 10:42, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm surprised you made this edit. I don't think there can be any reasonable doubt that the Tony Hall who made that comment was the same Tony Hall who had compered at the Flamingo Club, who wrote at the time for the Record Mirror, and who was active in the Soho jazz scene in the 1950s and 1960s - [1], [2], [3] - scroll down. I haven't found an explicit connection to the source of the comment, but I simply don't believe it to be in the slightest doubt. There are no other plausible candidates (this one was at school with me around that time!) Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:10, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
You may be right but Tony Hall is a very common name, I know one too, and you didn't give any evidence when you linked it in the first place. It's going on the front page soon so we ought to be certain. Can you prove it? Philafrenzy (talk) 12:13, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
The source of the quote is this page. Scroll down to the link to the Flamingo Club, which leads here, and it refers to "resident compere Tony Hall" and says: "...compering is in the capable hands of Tony Hall, who left Studio '51' after a two and a half year association to work at the Flamingo." If there had been more than one Tony Hall in that milieu at that time, the author of the page would have clarified which one was meant. But there was no need to do so, because there would have been no confusion - a writer on jazz who frequented the Soho clubs, and the subject of this article. It's beyond reasonable doubt the same person. Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:19, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough, I have reverted myself. Thanks. Philafrenzy (talk) 12:39, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Freddie Sessler[edit]

Freddie Sessler is another one for the rogues' gallery. Plus, I've started Redlands, West Wittering. Edwardx (talk) 19:46, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

I suppose his stories sounded credible if you were high. Philafrenzy (talk) 22:50, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Alas, we can make no such assumptions when it comes to DYK reviewers. Thankfully, your additions are rigorous and well-referenced. Edwardx (talk) 22:54, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
I propose that all DYK reviewers should have to smoke a joint beforehand in order to make everyone else's life easier. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:15, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you realise that I have a backlog of five DYK reviews to do... Edwardx (talk) 23:37, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Mark Palmer[edit]

Sir Mark Palmer, 5th Baronet - another Old Etonian pal of Mick Jagger's. And a future DYK. Not as colourful as Betty May, but quite promising nonetheless. Edwardx (talk) 11:33, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

You couldn't make it up. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:47, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Lionel Fraser[edit]

What about "DYK that Sir Lionel Fraser was the father of Groovy Bob?" And not too late to add a bit, if you fancy a co-credit... Edwardx (talk) 14:14, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

"DYK that Lionel Fraser worked in naval intelligence and was the father of Groovy Bob?" Philafrenzy (talk) 14:43, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the edits and the ALT, which I will use. I suppose the contrast that I'm looking for is between the establishment and the counter-culture. I do find the idea of "Groovy Bob" eminently clickable. Edwardx (talk) 15:09, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
They are both fine. Mine was along the same lines - naval intelligence vs. groovy bob. Philafrenzy (talk) 15:25, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Amendments to Betty May[edit]

Hi, I apologise for the lack of an edit summary, as you guessed I'm new to Wikipedia and will observe the guidelines for this of course. Thanks for the heads up, I'll give it another go WikiDickiDiDo (talk) 12:48, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. It was more the removal of referenced content though that concerned me. Are you involved with the upcoming musical? Philafrenzy (talk) 13:27, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Timothy Whidborne, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Connoisseur. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Temperance Billiard Hall (Chelsea)[edit]

Now a clothes store, and more importantly, opposite a Waitrose. I have some photos somewhere, including the interior, but I probably won't add them until Wiki Loves Monuments starts on 1 September. This year, WLM is extended to include all Grade II buildings. Edwardx (talk) 13:58, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

And linked from David Litvinoff which was how I found it. If you can get an exterior shot that would make a good illustration for the Litvinoff article which could do with a few more. BTW I have just found in a charity shop this book which has a whole chapter titled Granny Takes a Trip. Philafrenzy (talk) 14:19, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll have a look for a photo soon. That book looks good - I'm sure there's much you could add, Granny even has a stamp. 16:45, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you want to borrow it? In about a month. It goes from about 1966 up to punk including Sex (boutique). Do you fancy splitting out The Pheasantry from Martin Sharp. It cries out for similar treatment to 50 Carnaby Street. Philafrenzy (talk) 16:50, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks for creating the Anne Hollander article - it's great! Am currently reading Seeing Through Clothes and she'd been on my list of people to tackle at some point or another. Mabalu (talk) 09:12, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! I hope you will expand the article. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:41, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
