I am trying to find out if a photograph exists of ALDERMANBURY AVENUE, a small street which ran from ALDERMANBURY (in the City of London) up to PHILIP LANE from about 1880 until its destruction by enemy action in 1941.
The street was full of small factories allied to the 'soft goods' industries: shirt and blouse makers, hosiers, umbrella makers and the like.
My great-grandfather, Arthur Wright, was in partnership with his brother Frederick, and their company, Frederick Wright & Co. Shirt Manufacturers was housed at 11 Aldermanbury Avenue, EC2 from 1897 until 1941, producing shirts for the wholesale and export market.
By 1902, the firm had also expanded to 80 Woodstock Street, Canning Town, E.16, until the company ceased trading in 1943.
Kelly's Directory has proved invaluable, of course, but a picture of the Avenue would be a bonus.
Any pointers gratefully received.
