Although 5 Bateson Row isn't shown on this site, presumably it was either opposite or just off the photograph. This was the home of my Great great grandfather, Samuel Johnson, who was living there in 1881 with his wife Martha and their 7 children. Sam was an iron-puddler, one of his sons was a cloth dresser and another ( my Great grandfather ) a skinner; the other five were all still at school.
