Bridal shop is long gone but still flats above. Hairdressers still going but not the original owners. Tattooists is also part of True's now.
And old mate of mines grandmother lived in what was the tattooists when it was just a house. Her name was Mrs Wilkin. Lots on here
about that building when it was Flander's clay Pipe factory, and some nice pictures of the pipes made there.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

If I may, and moving forward in time to about the 1980s. Was there an office for "the department of health" (presumably the NHS) in St Ann's Street? I'm guessing that it was either where the old St Ann's House used to be (the back of the Tudor Rose) or where the current St Ann's is? It seems to have been next to Ship Lane.

Cannot remember a "department of health" in St Annes street myself Zoo. One side of Ship lane was St Nicks Mission hall (now a private dwelling)
and on the other side of the lane St Annes hse. It could be that part of St A Hse.It could have been used as such as it was divided up into units.
I cannot find it on any of my lists though.

:smt017 ....... I can recall going to the old Drill Hall in St Nicholas St with my mother to pick-up our new Ration Books, this would have been abt 1950.
Hope this helps.

I mention doing the same in this thread RP. Would that come under Dept of Health?

Thanks EWW. I wish I could give a date for this use by "The Department of Health". It was certainly before 1986.

I asked an old North-ender about this when we were in Trues Yard to-day.
The old Drill Hall in St Nicholas St was used as a sub office by the Ministry of Labour and National Service during and just after WW2.

desira says in the Duke of Connaught thread that she had to go there to get her national insurance number.
Would that be the same place RP?

My first cousin (3x removed) Albert Edward Alexander Taylor was licensee from 1904 to 1921; on his death, his widow Louisa (nee Howard) took over until her own death in 1928.
