« on: Thursday 18 May 06 14:53 BST (UK) »
Hi,

According to the Post Office Directory for Lincs 1876. My 2xGreat Grandfather was a Master Baker and there are two addresses shown, 73 West Street & 13 Dolphin Lane, would one of these be a Baker's shop?? and would any photo's exist of West Street & Dolphin Lane ???

Hi Sue,

Not that I know of. As far as I know they were all born in Boston.

Hi ... Boston had bakers called Lovely ... they had premises down West Street and Dolphin Lane ... the premises in West St were bombed in 2nd WW... and were distant relatives of mine. I could probably get you some recent photos of the Emery Lane premises

Hi J,

Thanks for the offer, it was a old photo that I was after round about the 1900's.

Emery Lane photo should be relevant even if recent, as I don't recall much alteration (if any!) down there.  Loveley's bakery on West Street would only give a modern photo, or possibly one from before the bombing raid.Since the shop was next door to the Royal George which was also destroyed, contacting the brewery which I think was Warwick and Richardson (now part of Whitbread) might produce a picture of the pub and incorporate part at least of the shop. The following is a quotation from p53 of Boston at War by Martin Middlebrook "On the night of 12th June 1941, a single heavy bomb burst behind West Street, near James Street. A public house -the Royal George- Loveley's Commercial Hotel, and several houses were destroyed and when the ruins were cleared next day it was found that there was a tragic death toll. One of the dead was Mr. John Faulkner, an old man in his seventies; there was a soldier's wife, Mrs. Nancy Harris, with her three little children, and, finally, two well-known teenage girls, Kathleen and Audrey Loveley. In all, nine people died in what was Boston's worst air-raid incident of the war."
