I am trying to do some research into my grandfathers, Godfey Gould's shop roughly between 1907-1919. The shop was located at 10-12 Slade Lane Longsight Manchester and is now being renovated. I am trying to clarify a few details and hoped someone maybe able to help me.

Firstly I want to know when the shop was built and whether it was built by my Grandfather’s brother William Gould.

Secondly I would like to know how many other business were run in this shop after he left in 1919.

Thirdly if anyone can locate any memorabilia, photographs or records relating to my Grandfathers shop. We think it was called Longsight Furniture Store.

Finally I am also trying to research an early business he had on Stockport Road. Please see second posting entitled Furniture Store-Stockport Road, Longsight

Many thanks
