Sharp Street, Wallgate

Started by: Geoff Livesley (2)

Hi, My great great grandfather William Rowe used to bottle mineral water at his premises at 1 Sharp St. I have a stone bottle of his which I dug up in the 70s at a Platt Bridge tip, I'd post a picture if I knew how to. He was at that address in the 1911 census. Does anyone have any information about him, his family or his business. Thanks G.

Winnie, Thanks for the information you have done a lot of searching. Elizabeth Rowe was my great grandmother who I remember from my early childhood. My mother was born at the Railway Hotel in Moss Lane, she is still going strong. G

Hello Geoff, my Aunt Mary married Ellen Rowes Brother Billy, and they lived in Prescot Street, roundabout the 50's 60's..I remember Billy had a motor bike with a side car..in my early teens my Mam would take me to Ellens clothes shop which was on Wallgate facing the L&Y station, she sold some lovely clothes..one thing I will always remember was Ellen saying to my Mam "Your Maureen would look lovely in sack cloth" at a time in your teens when how you looked meant so much, happy memories.
