|Been doing a bit of research in the 1921 Census|

My late mum's past was always a bit of a mystery. She appeared to have been raised by an 'aunt' (not in the Handmaid's Tale sense), but that was all I knew really.
After some delving and a lot of dead ends, I managed to track down her birth cert last year using Ancestry and ordering a copy.
Turns out she was illegitimate, which in 1914 was probably a bit tricky. Especially as her mum was married. The actual father's name is on the birth cert. I imagine this was so her husband wouldn't have any liability for the child.
Anyway, the 1921 Census shows her in Essex, a seven year old 'fostered' to a 55 year old women. The 'aunt' was living in the house, possibly the niece or daughter of the foster mother.
I'm now going to try and track down where my maternal grandparents were in 1921.
I already know that my dad, in about 1923-24, ended up in a single parent household when his father left to live with another women. His three children disowned him, to the extent that I never met him, and didn't know of his death when I was 12 until I was 35 (I found is death cert when my mum died).
All a bit of a shock to realise what a dreadful time they must have had in the 1920s.

'An atlas for the curious mind' is the subtitle, which is presumably why some friends bought it for me.
Anyway, the question is 'what is unique about The Lebanon with regard to a major event in New York?'

If there's a guy called Marcus Nash works at ITFC?
If he does, does anybody know what colour hair he has?
And, ideally, what his role is?
