Cowper Street was between Newtown Row and Alma Street. There was a school called Cowper Street. My grandfather owned a shop on the corner of Newtown Row and Cowper Street called From Factory to Wearer [cutting out the middle man].

Hope its OK with Alf, but attached is the map you want. I can't be certain exactly which is no 8, but i think it is in red. Certainly, from the directories it must be that one or next door
