I'm just trying to find pictures of the Rimrose Hotel which I believe was bombed in December 1940 if anyone can help please.

Welcome to the forum, okv. I've done a search for the Rimrose hotel, but could not find anything.

It was on Rimrose road at the top of Marsh lane, it was bombed on the 20th Dec 1940, my great grandfather owned it.

Thanks very much, I'm also a VENEY. If you have any more info I would be very grateful. I'm trying to find out what the significance of this ale jug is.

Looking at the map I think that the land the hotel was on was turned into a small housing estate. Anderson avenue and Grimley Avenue. I think my parents and other family members moved in a bout 1952

You are correct elmajo, my husband lived on that estate from 1952 until we got married in 1966, he lived on Baird Ave, I think most of the people who lived there in 1952 came from the Millars Bridge tenements when they were demolished.

Yes, my family came from Johnson Street and Mann Street, we lived in Grimley Avenue, Anderson Avenue and Rimrose Road flats. We were Calle Larkin.maybe your husband would have known my uncle Tommy.
