I wonder if the Post Office would deliver a letter to the address as given in the left-hand column?  :-\
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

Was occupation 'coper by trade' meant for Arthur or Sarah? Was he an out-of-work/retired cooper or did Sarah have a lifetime of coping with whatever life threw in her way?
The women boarders have proper official occupations. What year?
 
(1)  I think the addition is meant for Arthur on the top line.
(2)  my 1932 Webster's has:
Coper, n. [from COPE to barter]  1. a dealer or chapman ... specifically a horse dealer, esp. one of doubtful integrity.
This last description would fit, I think ?
EDIT - (3)  I read somewhere that the occupation of dressmaker was a not uncommon euphemism ?
