I once bought a house in Parbold and when I was moving out I cleared the attic and found an old picture of a Wigan family. On the back was written by the photographer (who was Rudolph Douglas, 28 upper Dicconson st Wigan) Mr Ball 316 Woodhouse.


If anyone knows of this family and can inform them that I would like to return it, please PM me.

Thanks
Phil

Bet they had plenty of mustache cups in their house. Laughing



Wonder for how long they would have had to keep still for by being photographed.

I have looked on google maps and I see there is a Ball Street off Woodhouse Lane and 136 Woodhouse lane is very close. Is this just a coincidence?

Ball St, was a row of terraced houses on the Martland Mill side of the Woodhouses Pub, (now "Keepers") leading down to Ball St (Ell Meadow) Locks, & Burneys factory on the L&L canal. I know that the Robinson family lived in the first one...Other than that.???

Art, who owned Burneys factory because they look like a well heeled family.
Also what was made at Burneys factory?

The words on the back seem to say last order of a set.
