Harry Rutherford's Festival of Britain Mural
My Great Aunt Nellie (Sarah Ellen Ashworth) lived in Nelson Street and your picture has brought back memories of visiting her there. She was married to Tom Ashworth for only a short while as he died in 1937 from Bronchitis. She never remarried. Lived at 1 Nelson Street Hyde until she went into Old peoples home in Newton until her death in 1978. She had arthritis in her hands but was very independant.She taught me how to make a cup of tea when I was bout 8! Always sent us a 2/6p postal order on our birthday. Worked at Arthur Danes (Painter & Decorator) on Market St. Hyde. Elayne
Hi Elayne , I have a booklet about Nelson Street called "White Knob Row" that you might find interesting. I'll dig it out and post some excerpts from it soon.
