Hi Iain. It was interesting to read your post about Starley Road. A bit before your time but my great grandparents William and Frances Yardley ran the shop at 43 Starley Road until 1920 when Frances died. I think then it was a general store. William applied for a drinks license but was rejected. He also repaired watches there. My grandfather went to live with them after the loss of his wife and children until he reamarried in 1915. I look forward to more of your reminiscences.
