Mr John Henry Foley. I have heard that name before. In fact, we have come across some of his creations as we have travelled around the country. Obviously we want to know all there is to know about him, his life, and his career. We would especially like to hear about what drew him to London.

You see the comments “Flickr is sometimes amazing” and “National Library of Ireland on the Commons Is Always Amazing” on this stream from time to time. Today we put these comments to the test – your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find and link to an image of each and every Foley creation. We might even raid the Virtual Sticky Bun Box for very creative comments and links.

Photographers: Ernest Edwards, 20 Baker Street W. London
