Wasn't this Street called Pump Street?

I married into the Harrison family and my father-in-law John, tells me they thought it would wash off in the rain a day or two later! It was called Pump street and wife has fond memories of staying with her Grandma Harrison who lived in Pump Street on a Friday night with a fish & chip supper!
