Yorkshire (West Riding) / Unidentified shop in Hebden Bridge or Mytholmroyd

I am attempting to place a photo (date unknown) of a grocer's shop which is possibly in the upper Calder Valley.  There are few clues (we know the lady on the left and she was born around 1800).  There's not too much to go with, but the steps up to the shop and the angle of the wall on the far left may ring some bells.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I'll go with Molyneaux and Downs.  Thanks to all for your help

PS  I wrote this and forgot about it until now (8:15 pm), so I missed the Downes entry into the mix.

I agree, Jebber, the name is usually spelled Molyneaux with a single L and I would doubt that the census-takers of 1881 would be familiar with the name.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / 19th century child mill workers in Halifax

I am trying to document children who were brought to work in the Halifax mills around 1880.

There were several orphanages/properties where the children were housed, many near the mills owned by the Calvert family in the Warley and Wainstalls area.

The current list of names can be found at

My question here is regarding names that I cannot read on the 1881 census for a place called Spring Mill in Warley, Halifax. 

1) the 1st name: Elizabeth Dowas

2) the 3rd name: Mary Molly ?unclear?

Both girls came from Liverpool.

Can anyone read or (even better) recognise the names?

Even better still would be to hear from anyone whose family tree includes these names

Best wishes and thanks in advance.

I feel that I should correct my last message about what I thought was STAT COUNTER's poor response. 

I did receive a second email from them, answering my question, but my Spam filter didn't recorgnise the numbers-only Subject line as acceptable, and I suspect that their original reply might have gone the same way and got lost when I deleted it with the dozens of others which we get every day.

My apologies to STAT COUNTER for making them appear uncaring.

Regards

Not too impressed with STATCOUNTER support.  After I downloaded their stuff, I emailed them, asking whether it was possible to set a start value for the counter.  I received an email confirming that they had received my email, but I am still waiting 8 days later. 

There's only so much they can blame COVID for.  I don't think I shall be buying their services.

Technical Help / Re: Adding FTP facility to an HTML *CLOSED*

Thank you.

This works OK for the .DOCX Word document and downloads it as I want, but with the .TXT file this just opens the document and displays it on the screen, but doesn't download it.  So I'll just go with the Word document format.

Best wishes and thanks again

Technical Help / Adding FTP facility to an HTML

I want to allow users to download TXT and Word documents from within the pages of my Calderdale Companion.

Let's assume that my files are called

document.txt and document.docx

then what is the syntax of the HTMl code to perform this download to the user's system?

Thank you in advance
