Regarding the Towlers - I notice from looking up my ancestors in Keppel Street that there are quite a few Towlers close by. This is almost certainly the 1901 census (I no longer have access to the census on A........Co. It almost appears that one ancestor may have been a Towler before being an Anderson or Baldwin - perhaps a first marriage rather than a maiden name - not sure at all and cannot check.

From what I remember of the time Bry the pub was the last building to come down.
But I may be totally wrong.

The house on the right you can see with the net curtains was the house where our member Delbert grew up. Number 61.
Today it is a carpark.

I know these threads go back many years but could not resist putting in my ha'peth piece as it's part of my youth going back to the 50s and 60s with fond memories.

Fond memories also of Wheatleys. Daisy Wheatley was my Auntie. As for Towlers I too was taken there for my haircut by my Dad. Beside Eddie Towler the younger chap who worked with Eddie was Philip never knew his surname. I too remember the umbrella repairs. Forgot about these but this soon came back to me after hearing from other Forum Members memories of this time. It is always great to go back through the history of K/L on this site ( more opportunity during Lockdown) and see some of the great photos that are not generally seen.
Thanks for all contributors to this site.

A mate of mine dive on the bed and snapped his front tooth in half on a stone hot water bottle.
Good job he did not dive out or it could have been the guzzunder. :D

I worked at John Blundell in Chapel St I believe numbers 7-11 from 1976-83. My grandfather's sister Nellie married Samuel Ely in 1920 and lived at number 57.
