History of 175 Gwydir Street (Leicester Cottage)

See History of Gwydir Street and Buildings in Gwydir Street.



Lusher Munns, telegraphist, lived in 175 Gwydir St in 1904 (see Spalding's Directory).

He was still there in 1913 (see Spalding's Directory).


Mary Naylor (nee Thompson) wrote to me in 2012 saying:

"My great aunt Blanche Louise Ellis lived at no. 175. She taught piano and was married to a carpenter - I still use some of his tools."
