1874 Advert - Roger Bolton
  I have distant recollections, in the 60's, of a shop in Standishgate with the name Bolton. The company was founded in 1826.

Wasn't Bolton's Ironmongers at the Standishgate end of The Old Arcade?

Boltons had a small warehouse in the corner of Commercial Yard between Latimers warehouse and the Conservative Club.

Roger Bolton's was still a working foundry in the 1960's, it was situated at the rear of 52-54 Standishgate. The Central Wireless Company had a shop and offices at 52 Standishgate and was a Murphy TV and Electrical goods dealer. It was quite a surprise to still have a working foundry behind a shopping area, almost in the Town Centre. You could access this foundry with a motor vehicle from Back Mesnes Street ( now Mesnes Terrace ) between Baillie's Cafe/ Pie Shop and the then Pram Shop on Mesnes Street.
