I think it must have been 44 Lower tower St, as no 44 Tower St would seem to be under the church. I don't know whether it is a coincidence, but the Recreation Ground would seem to be part of what was earlier court 2 Tower St. I attach two maps showing Tower st and Lower Tower st in 1889 and 1913. On the 1889 map court 2 is in blue and court 10 in red. On the 1913 map, the recreation ground is in green and no 44 Lower Tower st in orange. It would seem that between the two maps the terrace of houses in court 10 were demolished, but for consistency have marked twhere they were in red
Sorry too large , will have to post other map on new post
Thanks everyone …A lot of our grand and great grandparents would have known each other! ..great thread, photos and maps..I believe this photo is my great grandfather .Francis Thomas Price...as a publican…he would have known many people I am sure.. he eventually moved the family out to Sheldon and ran the Wheatsheaf in the 1930s..Hi all, I hope you are all well.
