The current Lewisham History Journal has an article as relevant to Greenwich as Lewisham - The Noakes family - tells the story  of a family, many of whom were majicians and some of whom lived in the Westcombe Park area.  The family also had a business in Nelson Road which seems to have varied from being the 'South London Optical Works' to a forage business.  

The article however draws particular attention to the Noakesoscope.......................... read all about it in Journal No.19
(can any kind officer of the Lewisham Society give us details of how to get copies)
