33 Water St Manchester
« on: Sunday 25 November 18 10:43 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for the location of No. 33 Water st in Manchester. My granddad had a horse collar manufacturing business there.
Thanks for any help, Yvonne

Yes I believe that's the right street. As you say it's all changed. I was just wondering where no 33 would have been. Thanks Yvonne

"Always Something
A most fascinating street is Water Street, little narrow thoroughfare of Georgian fronts that winds hapharzadly about the Manchester-Salford boundary.
There's always something to look at in Water Street, whether it's Joseph Stansfield sitting at his bench in the window of No. 33, stitching away at a horse collar, or ...."
