Middle Street in photographs

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.

The sign says 9-12. The Dinnis family lived at No. 9 for a while.

I don't know what this bulding is, but it looks great.

The Hippodrome, theatre long closed.

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.

About Jackie Dinnis

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.
