Historical notes

No70 Third Avenue first appears in the Bath Street Directory of 1913, as the residence of William Cooper. His profession is not listed but close neighbours worked as cabinet makers (No68), GWR checkers (No74) and GWR engine drivers (Nos 55 and 59 opposite). From directory and electoral registers, it appear Mr Cooper stayed at the property until 1919.
The next owner, a GWR railway clerk by the name of William James Stokes, occupied the property in 1920. The 1936 electoral register shows his wife Amy joining him at the house. Although there are some gaps in the records, it seems William died in 1950, leaving Amy at the property up to 1962. From this point, a Mr & Mrs Robert Read are listed on electoral registers from 1962 to 1965 but the property shows as unoccupied on street directories. By 1966, the property was taken over by I.F Glazier.
