Number 19 Wallgate, just below Bretherton Row. Premises now occupied by Little Fifteen pub.
Dress and hairstyles suggest photo was taken before WWI in the Edwardian period.

Smartly dressed with beautiful nipped in waists. Makes me envious to see them. I have a photograph of my grandmother wearing similar dress with a waist to die for - natural not corseted.
