Booths/Sadler St/Princes Road. - a Memory of Widnes.
I tried to post on the board earlier, but may have botched up. But if it appears twice. Whoopsie!
Now, I'm going back a bit...
My grandparents Annie and Arthur Booth and their daughter (my mum) Barbara lived on Sadler street #4, subsequently moving to Princes Road #60, I'm guessing mid to late 30's. Possibly much later. I know they were living on Sadler in 1933. That's when the Booths adopted my mum.
I visited Princes Road as a young child, but my brother has more recollection.
I was initially looking for photographs of the perfume factory in Croydon where my biological grandmother, Doris Watkins worked 1924/30 time. Now it's led me to reading memories and potentially knowing the schools mum attended, exciting and to be followed up on!
If anyone recalls any Booths, old or young, I believe some lived on peelhouse too, please share.
