"I was interested in the photo of the Junction Inn, but I knew it was not the right picture. I attach a photo taken around 1984."
"My great grandmother Mary Ann Helliwell had a shop at 148 Ashton Road which remained in the family for some years. I know she was living in the shop in 1918 when her son was killed at war. I also know that her daughter Edith kept the shop, she had a daughter called Jean. Then for a while my parents took over, then my mothers brother took it over for a short time before coming to Australia. I would say around late forties the shop ceased or was taken over. I know the 1984 photo shows the original shop as part of the hotel now. I would be interested to know if anyone does have earlier photo’s of the Junction with the shop alongside."
If anyone can help, please send the photo to us where we can,in turn, send it on to Judith :)
Many Thanks for sharing, Judith !
