Thanks, Diane. I did consider that, but as the L occurs quite often (e.g. in the names Lloyd as well), it seems unlikely to be a misreading - the shape is the same.
Off-list, I've received a helpful suggestion that as his London address is a hotel and his profession diamonds, it's possible he was a visitor from South Africa so that might be the best place to look... but there is nobody relevant shown at https://www.ancestors.co.za/database/ALL-DBContent-results.php?term=Lasker&sqry= and the person running the site says historical records are not online: "
you will either need to go in personally to access the records [or pay me to do it]".
