There was a pet shop called Hutchinson too...but I can't remember where it was. !

 

Hutchinson's had a pet store in the Wicker, at the corner of Stanley Street.

Hi Bantycock,no Harry had his own yard, at the bottom he had stables where he kept two of the biggest saddleback pigs I've seen.Think he had chickens too.The Gordons lived in the next yard going down Hunsley St,Mr Gordon passed away early on this year.

open, men at work Plastering the walls.

According to some on this site it's not going to be a pub tho'. As for the bus ride, sounds like the old Petre Street bus (34-35) and I expect it doesn't terminate at Hunsley Street or Refrom Chapel anymore.
