Interesting that number 10 got used as engraver's shop again 8 years after John Raphael Smith left it, wonder if facilities stayed in place, no clue of Nicholas Ball the intervening ratepayer having been an engraver. Also next door neighbour Shilfox (QV*) set up as engraver in Oxford St (previously hairdresser) just before Vincent came to Batemans Buildings
