1900s'. Mr William brown the Pub Landlord showing off a Shire horse to demonstrate the high standard of stabling to admiring onlookers outside the old Seven Stars Inn at the lower end of Bridge Street (right hand side looking up).
1900. The old half timbered house in Church Street with Rylands wire works on the right, this site is now occupied by Sainsbury's store.
Looking down Bridge Street showing the congested bottle neck near Rylands Street. This would be around 1890 as the street has not been widened also there are no tram power cables.
1890 - 1900. Houghton's hardware shop at the top of Bridge Street, judging by his display of watering cans it must have been a good summer.
The Royal Court Theatre in Rylands Street.
Around 1910, a tram travelling up Buttermarket street toward Market Gate.
A crowd gathering in the town centre to celebrate the visit of King Edward VI to Warrington in 1909.
Early 1900s'. Market Street the 'Cattle Market public house is on the right behind the gas street lamp, a Policeman walking past.
Another view of Market street, the building on the immediate right would be the 'Vine Inn'.
The Palace Hippodrome at Friars Gate, looking almost new.
An early view of the 'Barley Mow' although the building itself was very old by this time.
The Fox Inn around 1908, no longer a public house and now called 'Ye Olde Fox' and housing a Tobacconist and what appears to be a second hand shop.
You can take Warrington out of Lancashire, but you'll never take the Warrington-born Lancashire Folk out of Warrington.
