Item #: 1116
I was born in the house on the left (with thebricked-up window) in 1932. And lived across the road at the Rectory Lodge for many years.
I wondered what numbers on Frog Lane the photo shows. My great grandfather lived at number 94 at the 1881 census. The house has now gone - is it in the photo by any chance?
Hi Phillip been doing a little investigation here: my Nan lived at 110 which was the 2nd house after Prescott St and my Aunty lived next door 108 which was on the corner. Counting back the houses your Grandfather's seems to be right up against the bridge where - in my mothers days in the 1920's and onward there was a Men's Urinal!!! You can see the houses clearly on the Wigan (west) map from 1907
Many thanks for you information. You have been most helpful. I will think of my Grandfather in a new way!
Per the 1861 census, my GGG grandmother, Alice Spencer Freeman Belshaw, and her son Charles, my GG grandfather, lived at No. 2 Frogs Lane. Does anyone have any idea which end of the lane No. 2 would be? Or even if No. 2 is in this photo. And thanks for sharing these photos.
Re no2, FROG LANE. The nearest house, with bricked up window, is actually in Hallgate,(the street off to the left)as its front door doesn't appear to be on Frog Lane, which starts from this junction. Therefore, no 2 will be the 1st house on the left, just after the man walking past the houses. Can't see this being the actual house you are looking for, as these houses look a little too modern for 1861, but this would be the location you are looking for
Mine were in No 118.A
lot different to Shetland!
the man walking down frog lane on the left was Robert aspinall from number 6 Beresford street his daughter is marie ann aspinall who became Cadman my first wife the man walking across the road is a teacher from the deanery high school I can not put a name to him but I remember him
