Allcock St
« on: October 14, 2018, 09:19:24 PM »
Has anyone know of a link to photos of Allcock St, Deritend from pre 1960.
Other than a poor photo of the Great Western Public House, I have been unable to find any.
TIA

Phil

Hi Deritend


Welcome to the forum, yes there are not many photos of Allcock Street about. Is there anything in particular that you were looking for? In the meantime here are a couple of early images of Allcock Street the first one shows numbers 20-23 of the street frontage. The next one shows some back houses in number 2 court. I think they both date well before the 1960's.

Thanks Phil, and Astoness.
The first photo is just how I remember it, with the house in between the school and the Pub.
We lived on the other side of the Street towards Liverpool St end at number 43, with Ransfords shop on the corner.
Probably too much to hope for a photo of "our end, but you never know.
Thanks again.
