Restoration Help Please of King William Street Ironville
« on: Thursday 16 January 14 17:07 GMT (UK) »
If anyone can work some magic on this picture, make it a little sharper and clearer it would be really appreciated.  Colour would be nice.  It is for a local history project that I am doing.
Many thanks,
Andy
The main names that I am researching into at the moment are Cadman,(originating from Bulkington, Warwickshire), Smedley, (Leicestershire and Derbyshire), Paynes (Leicestershire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire) and Udall - you will also find several other names on my web page. I look forward to E-Mails from anyone who would like to share or talk about our family history.

Wow! Thank you Terry - So much clearer and sharper - Andy

Just incase anyone is interested this is what the Street looked like in 1975 before it was demolished. A "Model Village" disappeared!

Such a shame that the streets disappear Andy... and not always for the better.

And thank you Carol :) :)
