Had a great meeting with a member of the Rain family today who helped fill in some more details about Onda’s career. The highlight had to be seeing Onda’s passport from 1897! I also had the pleasure of seeing a lovely silk programme for the Grand Opening of the Empire Palace Theatre in Leeds on Monday 29 August 1898, the Brothers Onda were of course on the bill. A big thank you.
