Here he remained until 1930 when he left to enter into partnership with H SIEMERINK and HAH WALKER in East London (cf SIEMERINK, WALKER & LANE). In 1935 Lane left the firm setting up on his own in East London and admitting WP OSMOND into partnership on 1 September 1936 (cf LANE & OSMOND). Lane retired in 1954.
