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

It could be this street:

Using Google Maps it looks to have been redeveloped.
Howard , Viney , Kingsman, Pain/e, Rainer/ Rayner, Barham, George, Wakeling (Catherine), Vicary (Frederick)   all LDN area/suburbs  Ottley/ MDX,
Henman/ KNT   Gandy/LDN before 1830  Burgess/LDN
Barham/SFK   Rainer/CAN (Toronto) Gillians/CAN  Sturgeon/CAN (Vancouver)

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
