Hairdressers

Post  kaywallbank on Tue Nov 06, 2012 10:41 am

My Gr Grandfather Richard Henry Dearden was a hairdresser in Ramsbottom and Bury.
I am trying to find photos of the premises he held. The 1st was 38 The Rock (a Bank...presume he had rooms upstairs) and the other was at 13 Walmersley Road, which I presume is now long gone!
We have a photo of a wedding couple of the family outside a building which has the name of Dearden, Hairdresssers on a plaque. This is brick built. Could this be Walmersley Road? Does anyone know of any photos?
I am new to this forum, so unaware how to send photos. I have a couple of posters which may be of interest if you could let me know of an email address to send.
Thanks for your help
Kay

Thanks David. We have worked out where his premises were in Rammy, but it's the Walmersley Road one which we are puzzled about. Wondered if any old photos of the early stretch of the Road have survived (No.13)
Thanks

Google bury image bank and enter walmersley road in the search box.

Navigate to page 20 and click on image b 13189.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for pointing me to the photo archive. Now I am puzzled. I have a poster of my Gr Grandfather which states he has hairdressing premises at 13 Walmersley Road, Moorside, Bury. However the archive photo shows that it is the Wheatsheaf Pub! I have a photo of the marriage of his daughter outside what I presumed was no. 13 in 1917. If anyone would like to see the poster and photo I will happily forward them. A hairdressers and pub in same building! Anyone any ideas?
Regards
Kay

It is possible that the Wheatsheaf pub was no. 13 and was used partly as a hairdressers. It was not unusual at the start of the 20th century for pubs to have other activities or businesses within their premises. I live near the Pack Horse Inn at Birtle and before the last war it was apparently possible to go for a pint, have your hair cut, have your horse shoed and even get someone laid out for a funeral (after they had died of course). It was a way to attract customers who might not have otherwise entered the pub!

Thanks Roy, that sounds like a logical explanation.
