Christ Church rectory is still on Ashton New Road opposite the Etihad but is now a café called Maine Road Café.   The Church was directly behind it on Charlesworth Street, (used to be Church Street), and the school was opposite the church.
            Hope this helps.

I'm looking into my family history.  My mum was Winifred Linihan who lived in Rudkin Street, Bradford, and my dad was Roy Heaviside who lived in Gibbon Street.  The houses are all demolished now but I have memories of trolley buses on Ashton New Road, and my mum worked at Clayton Aniline from about 1950.  My dad was a draughtsman with Mather and Platts in Newton Heath.  My memories are a bit hazy as the houses and parts of the streets were demolished in the 60s -70s but I'd love to find out more.  Any help would be gratefully received.  Thank you.
Linda Worrall [nee Heaviside]

Gibbon St had the barbed wire dept. for Richard Johnson @ Nephew,afterwards a carpark for the Co. I saw a rabbit there in 1972,nature making a comeback.
The St was near,Phillips Park Press and Granellies Icecream makers.
Not sure if it is now covered by the Superstore facing the City Stadium.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason

Hi Lynwmusic,  your mum Winifred 1934-2008 ? although I never met her was my 3rd cousin and was her mum Annie Potts/Linihan ?  The name Heaviside is a rare one but one I remember from school... Alan and Dennis... I think Alan was my 'sixer' in the Scouts at Saint Oswalds Collyhurst. I'm on 'Ancestry' and got the dates from there.   :)
