Does anybody have any information about this street?
Where was it, exactly?
When it was built? Demolished? Or its occupants- particularly in the late 40s, early 50s

Thanks.

Roughly where Milton Pub is (it's a breakfast bar now). Would have been demolished circa 1969 ish to make way for the precinct.

Follow the orange lines from the Crown Pub and compare on the 1950s map

Hi. Just finding my way around this website. I was looking for a map with Wilson St on it. My grandad John Quirk and great grandad Tommy Quirk (on my mothers side) lived in no. 10 Wilson St round the corner. Maybe you knew them. I remember the Brown Jug. Don't think I ever supped in the Combermere.
