Andrew Ward: "In 1881 the family were in Yorkshire, but in 1882 Alf (at the age of 4) is on the stage at the Shoreditch Theatre, as Lotto the infant bicycle wonder! Alf was such a success that with two more siblings the act became Lotto, Lillo and Otto. That in turn was so successful that, as a deliberate business strategy, John and Clara went on to have at least a further 15 children so that at one time there were three such acts touring together!
There are numerous other overseas trips, incidentally, including one or two long tours to Australia."
re. photos: "... there are plenty of Jack Lotto about - he's actually quite famous (or infamous), being one of the founders of the Water Rats. So they have a picture too, and there's also one of Jack plus Clara and Ernest at the very first Royal Command Performance Garden Party. Also, there is a picture called something like Three Girls - The Bicycle Wonders, although in fact one was not a girl but dressed as such for publicity purposes!"
Alfred married Ada "Cerito" Brown in 1903 in Lambeth, Surrey.
