Just testing Martin.  Thanks.

Fortunately, there is a link between both St Paul and St Stephen and the Apostles. Both were active in the early days of the Christian church and would have met some of the original twelve apostles. Stephen was the first Christian martyr and his stoning was witnessed by Paul (as Saul of Tarsus, before he converted to Christianity).

The building next to the 'Shop Fronts are Us' was once a shop belonging John Stanley and trading in a co-operative way predating the Rochdale Pioneers, dealing with fair wieghts and measures and selling Kosher produce for John Wroe's Christian Israelites.  It was here that my husband's great, great grandfather, Robert Stanley started his first day of work aged 10 for his uncle John in 1838.  It was here in 1958 that my husband started his first day of work aged 15.  It was then Weaver to Wearers.  We had no knowledge of this until we researched our family history.

Thanks herby.  You may not recognise the blue sky or the concrete block, but you'll know the other parts of the picture below.

Hi Bill,  This image brings back fond memories. Was brought up only doors away to the left of Victoria St corn mill. Mr Lowe, the owner, was a regular in our herbalist shop. Between the mill, a couple of adjoining houses and Oldham's cobblers, was Sack St, row of terraced houses which faced the side of the mill. Always being chased away from the mill doors by the workmen, loading waggons with enormous sacks. So that will be the original building, remains of the hoist above the upper door on the side wall still there too.
Photo on Tameside Images showing lower Margaret St, just misses our block off to the right on  Victoria St.
Your pic of the new Margaret St canal bridge also reminded me of visits to a friend's house,  she lived on the terrace off to the right. Can't recall the name though.  Thanks, Bill.   Denise    8)

I think they're perhaps working the night shift, Gay.

Hi Bill
            I know where that is. I used to play table tennis in there when it was a youth club. They didn't knock all of Church st down then.
Was that bus stuck under the bridge. I went on a morning drive from the Station hotel one Sunday we had two double decker buses and the first one got stuck under a bridge so we all got on one bus and just managed to get it under then all on the other and then off we went to the nearest pub then back to the Station for the last pint   Oh happy days.   herby
