So, here is Middle Street. It’s where my great-great-grandfather and great-great-grandmother lived. John Dinnis worked first as a servant, then as a cook. They had five children here: Catherine Ann, John Henry, Fanny, Harry and Charlotte Harriet.

Looking north up Middle Street
The sign says 9-12. The Dinnis family lived at No. 9 for a while.
I don’t know what this building is, but it looks great.
The Hippodrome theatre opened in 1897, so the Dinnis family wouldn’t have seen it. It has remained empty since 2007 and is situated at 52-58 Middle Street.
