Doseley Road


Doseley Road 001

From 1921 to the 1950's the Cosy Cinema stood on the right, now a carpark.

The shop on the left was number 9 & 10 Burton Street.

At number 1 Doseley Road, in the 1930’s and 40’s there was a Miss Maud Allworth confectioner.

I have been told that at some time a Mr Frank Williams repaired clocks from number 1 and his nick name was “tick tock”

Number 2 Doseley Road, in 1929 Noah Bray was a fried fish dealer but from 1934 to 1941 Mrs Maggie Bray was the fried fish dealer, I’m not sure if they are related.

At some time, numbers 1 & 2 was knocked in to one and Dabbs Brothers ran a bookmaker from there.
