    Notes 
    • From Kaye Wachter's book
      Alfred was quite an accomplished amateur photographer and many of the photographs from England that are in this book from the early 1900's are attributed to him.
      Mary Wickes wrote:
      "Alfred was a Superintendent in a separate section of the Bank from the main building in the heart of the City of London. Known as "St. Luke's Printing Works" they were responsible for the printing of all the bank notes. They were moved out of London to Overton in Hampshire for security reasons during the war, whereas the main bank building was considered reasonably safe with its many underground vaults," writes Mary HOW.
      Michael HOW adds, "Alfred drove very occasionally but was never happy with it, and never went above 40 mph"! And, "Alfred was stern, but mellowed with age, a good family man."
