Paul Aitkenhead

 

It is with great regret that the Society announces the death on 5th May 2017 of Paul Aitkenhead.  Paul lived in Draycott Avenue and was a member of the Council of the Society.  He had also been a member of the Planning Committee of the Society for Hans-Brompton Ward until retiring due to his health.

Paul was also known as a collector of antiquarian books and of antiquarian umbrellas. He could be found in pursuit of umbrellas at, for instance, Criterion Auctions in Upper Street, Islington and, when they needed repairs, he took them to that famous shop in New Oxford Street/High Holborn which has been selling walking sticks and the like since the 19th century.
