Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Does anybody have any old photos of Manor Street (ideally around the 1930's) 

 

Many thanks in advance

No I do not, but my mum worked there at Nevin;s HQ in the late 50s and 60s.

I remember going over the footbridge over the railway.

We had distant relatives who as brickies came from wigan in the 1800s.No doubt to build the massive increase in housing.They lived in manor st.

Yeah I was just about to say that Hort already said that earlier in the thread, anyway this is about all I could find online re Nevins & Manor Street.

I have an interest in Nevins because I think I remember my Mum once worked at one of their shops amongst all the other shops she worked all over St. Helens!

I think I mentioned this man before, Charles Nevin descendant of the Nevins, he mentions them in one of his books, which I haven't bought yet, but from the bits I've read it looks good.
