Nostalgia - Store owned by ‘Rabbit King’

I am writing to answer a question you raised in an article regarding John Lee and when he left 1 Oxford Street (Those were the Days, Market Rasen Mail, November 4).

In May 1903, fish and game dealer H Mainprize, or “The Rabbit King” as he was then known, moved into the premises previously occupied by John Lee.

By 1911, this had changed hands again, with the store run by Jabez Hunter, a fish and fruit merchant.

I hope this answers your question.
