29 Milford Street in 1904 - Watts
« on: Saturday 15 April 06 22:25 BST (UK) »
Looking for some local knowlege here.

I have just recieved my great grandmothers birth certificate. From this I have found that her father Charles Watts is listed as a the manager of a coffee public house. The family lived at 29 Milford Street at the time of her birth, and so I assume he worked and lived in the same building.

Can anybody identify what may have stood at 29 Milford Street all those years ago, and what kind of area it was?

The address can be searched for on the 1901 GR site. A voucher for credits will last longer.
It isn't going to be much help for you though as you do not identify the town?

Finally got ito 1901 and 29 Milford Street is not listed. So will have to rely on local knowledge it would appear.

You should be able to find the address you are looking for in one of the street directories, such as Kelly's or Brown's, which cover the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.  Copies of these are available in Salisbury library.  Are you local? If not, let me know all your info and I'll look it up for you.
