Comments about this page

I am amazed by the expertise of the contributors in identifying particular locations. I am really interested and as a resident of the town for all my life (60 years) would seek to know the best references available and where to research. I am able to pass on information to interested parties when asked, but mainly my information is gained from reading authorities like Tim Carder and Geoff Mead. I wish I had their knowledge and professional brilliance.

The bottom picture has the King and Queen pub in the far background so it must be Kingswood Street, about where the wood store is now.

Picture four is illiam St (Goldring was a bakers). Picture five is Carlton Hill 1-9, demolished in1933 (the hairdressers was Cecil Day).

S A Goldring Bakery on William Street was run by my Grandmother, Sarah Ann. My mother was Lilian May Goldring until she married my Dad, Joseph Hemsley in 1928.
