Good photo, sound organisation.
Dicconson is old English, cf Dicconson Lane on Aspull/Westhoughton boundary. The surname is now very rare, though Richardson is common.
In Shakespeare's Richard the Third:
"Brave Jack of Norfolk
Be not so bold
For Diccon thy master
Is bought and sold."

If I remember correctly these premises were once used as the Co operative Dentist after they moved from the emporium which was at the junction of Powell Street and Standishgate. I remember going there when I was growing up and the dentist was a Mr Bentley who used to travel from Southport where he lived every day

You are correct Pete in every detail of your post. I too used to go to the Co-op dentist at 73 Dicconson St and it was Mr Bentley from Southport.

Mick, I went along to take photos hoping to raise awareness of our local branch, as I only learned of it myself a few years ago :)
