Henry E. Poole

Henry E. Poole

Secretary to the Commissioners for the 1892 Westminster Public Library. Became librarian in Great Smith Street in March 1881 and went on to be employed by Westminster City Council as a branch librarian. Retired in 1904.

We have to assume that this is not the same Henry Poole that did the lovely bas relief work on the near-by wash-house.
