"Cafe Weismann" vs "Cafe Wiseman"
I see there are two spellings and I'm interested in the changeover or any stories. A relative of mine, Ellen HJ King, is listed as the license holder in 1914 with the spelling of "Cafe Weismann" I think it was locate at Queens Road Central. Before her was Reichert, and further back, the original Hans Weismann who operated as a bakery and caterer. He sold out and returned to Germany in about 1908 I think after some over enhtusiastic expansions had left him short of funds. Apparently it was taken over by Lane Crawford and the spelling was changed to "Wiseman".
