Judging by the directories of the period it was a mixed street with (in 1855) one named
pub , The Cross Pistols, another beer retailer, general shops, a "maker of papier mache goods and japanners", a naval brassfounder, two bakers, a wood turner, coal dealer, several gun workers and the Slaney Street Ragged School for boys & girls. by 1868 it is similar . but has had added a button maker and a "Glasgow dining Hall" , whatever that may be.
Attached is a painting of steelhouse lane slightly later,around 1880. Slaney street came out into steelhouse lane just the other side of the building with lettering on

Astwood

I know Mike will come up with a map, but in the meantime Slaney st ran in between Snow Hill & Weaman St running off Bath St. The whole area in those days was known as the Gun Quarter.

Astwood,

Is this the state your relation left Slaney Street in.

No I shouldn't make light because this is the result of a heavy nights bombing in 1940 and showing some of the damage caused to Slaney St.
