Bootle School ?

Postby ALAMO2008 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 12:51 pm

My Granddad Samuel Chapman lived at 13 Bala St from 1891 to 1900
Anyone any ideas what Primary School he would have gone to ?
And are there any photos
On the 1901 Census he appears at 24 Wood Street behind "The Saltbox"
Any ideas as to his Secondary School ?

His future Wife in 1910 appears to have lived per her Brothers Death Cert of Typhoid in 1897 at 11 Bala St.
So apart from being neighbours, they probably went to school together ?

That photo of St Mary's juniors is brilliant. Is that Irlam Rd? I remember the shops in that picture, not then but later on when we lived in Seaforth St. and later Irlam Rd. Blackledge's, Liggetts, Mr Roberts's Chandlers shop. The Post Office, next door (I think it was run by Mr Roberts' daughter, Renee ) Then there Winstanley's Chip shop, a newsagent/sweetshop. Strettles Fruit &Veg . Was there a pawn shop on the right hand end of the row ? Good days.

Hello Peter, also the barbers (O'Briens i think) and Alice Derbyshire, do you remember the the huge painting of the bull on the ceiling, part of a advert for bovril, it was a pawnshop, the front situated on Church Street was a shop, the rear of the pawn shop (where people made and redeemed pledges) was accessed at the back of the Irlam Rd shops which was Back Kirk Street). JJC.

Great memories. Used to run home from St. Winnies, left at the pawnshop and down to Tudno street.The window in the pawnshop were full of pocket watches and the inside was full of brown paper packages, shoved into shelving, obviously waiting for people to reclaim them.
