Wasn't Bolton's Ironmongers at the Standishgate end of The Old Arcade?
Bolton's did have a shop on Standishgate selling tools and ironmongery, was there in the 1960's.
That's the one, AW.
Boltons had a small warehouse in the corner of Commercial Yard between Latimers warehouse and the Conservative Club.
Roger Bolton's was still a working foundry in the 1960's, it was situated at the rear of 52-54 Standishgate. The Central Wireless Company had a shop and offices at 52 Standishgate and was a Murphy TV and Electrical goods dealer. It was quite a surprise to still have a working foundry behind a shopping area, almost in the Town Centre. You could access this foundry with a motor vehicle from Back Mesnes Street ( now Mesnes Terrace ) between Baillie's Cafe/ Pie Shop and the then Pram Shop on Mesnes Street.
