Location - Ashton or Billinge?

Started by: lupine (4)

Hello, can anyone help me identify the location in this photo from the brickwork of the house? It was taken in approximately 1927.

I believe it was one of the following two locations:

127 Main Street, Billinge
621 Eaton Cottages, Ashton in Makerfield

Winnie, the lady is one of my great grandmothers but I don't know which one. It is either Ann Massey who lived at the Ashton address or its Martha Haliday who lived at the Billinge address. I already checked the census. I'm trying to figure out which address the house is from to help me identifying the other people in the photo.
