Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

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.
Thanks!
