    Can anyone confirm for sure that Great Howard St. went up as far as 299
    GH St is a longish road,so it probably did.

    I see what Dave means George because just past the heritage market at the Luton Street bend it becomes Derby Road.

    The address in Howard Street comes from a note in the London Gazette (1871) where it states that Doran & Co are bankrupt. After that, Doran and his partners (Kreinschulten) move to Rhode Island in 1871.

    Ged, As far as I know and understand from the newspaper ads, the men organized the wholesale (they were drapers and merchants) and the women operated a store, possibly in Islington 53 (they were milliniers).

    Gerard, Thank you very much for your kind help.
