Winnie, I came across this on stuff/memories/Greenough Street

I worked in Maidwells sewing factory from 1939 - 1941. At the time they made ladies aprons, domestic overalls. It was on the corner of Orchard Street and Greenough Street. My mother had a grocery shop at 47 Scholes near Scholes crossing - Gallaghers. I moved from Maidwells to Northern Counties to do "war work" when I turned 18.

Perhaps the family lived over Gallagher's shop?
