« on: Saturday 24 February 07 01:44 GMT (UK) »
Can someone tell me if the following address still exit:

19 Engineer Rd, Woolwich, England.

This was Michael McElligott  my Ggreatgrandfather`s address in 1881.
My Ggreatgrandmonther was Mary (Leahy) McElligott. 

Thanks

Alain

There is an Engineer Close in Woolwich which you can find on the Streetmap site.  The area has been altered a bit but The Close is in the same place that the road was.  In my 1950's map it comes off Jackson Street.  There was a lot of bombing in that area during WW2 due to being so close to the docks and the Royal Arsenal.

Sylviaann could well be right with the location as a 1914 directory lists Engineer Road, Woolwich as leading from Gildersome Street to Jackson Street with Milward Street leading off of Engineer Road.

It seems I didn't add the map to my last post.  I hope it is there now

Hi  Sylviaann,

I cannot locate the street. I think that there is a missing part of the map.

Thanks
