At the time of build (1880), this property backed onto Crandale Nursery (replaced by Victoria Road & Victoria Terrace) and, at the front Summerlays Place/Cottages/Buildings sat between Dorset St and Denmark Terrace. By 1884, the residents in this section of the street were;

14 - William Kinnersley (engine driver)

15 - James Cox (billiard marker)

16 - Henry Bailey - labourer

17 - Miss Elizabeth Hole (grocer)

18 - Charles Pomeroy (fireman)



Of the 57 residents in the street in the early 1880s, at least 15 were employed on the railways. If like us, you're wondering about No15's owners profession the definition we found was "A Billiard Marker keeps scores made by players and indicates them on a scoring board. In public billiard halls, his duties also entailed things such as allocating tables, cues, chalk, and sometimes refreshment too. He coaches learners, plays with patrons and collects fees for use of the tables."
