    Lovely walk down memory lane. The photograph of ‘my Prescot’ is the one showing Maypole’s and Seddon’s shops. I used to work in Longsters chemist mid 1950s.

    Trip into the past of my Prescot… lived there 1958-61 then 1963 – 1971 remember the area so well having also worked at BICC. My 1st husband’s family came from Prescot. walked many times up wood Lane to shop in Eccleston st. There was a wool shop owned by two spinster ladies where I bought my baby wool.
    Good memories and sad ones …my first born was a still born buried somewhere in the Cemetary so it was comforting to see the memorial. Thank you

    My ancestors lived in Eccleston Street in 1850. I intend to pay a visit to Prescot and walk down this street, imagining what life was like back then.

    I have just acquired a Longcase Clock made by William Green Clock Maker who traded in Eccleston Street , Prescot from 1824 to 1834..So, fascinating to see the very early photographs. Not quite back in his time but not so many years after and wouldn’t have looked much different .
    He was born 1788 , married in 1815 a had four children and died in 1860. At the age of 72.
    Nice to be able to see the images of the street , the birth place of my clock.
