Peter Frost, I've been following my partner's family tree and found this picture in my search for any images of Lancaster St. It's a strange coincidence reading your comments because my partner's great-grandfather also lived in No.3 Lancaster Street - but in 1881! Before that in 1871 they lived in Rock Farm, Warrington Road. It's fascinating how small this world is :)
