Gregory Brothers Shop Seedley, Salford & Tideswell Connections

The letter from Malcolm Gregory arrived last night. As I looked through the contents, each item was more exciting than the next. I’ll share the best contents with you here.

1. A Photograph of Gregory Brothers shop at Seedley in Salford, Manchester. circa 1900- 1914.

The man in the doorway could be Charles Gregory 1890 – 1919. His father Ben owned this shop then. This was the last Gregory Brothers shop, closing in 1937. Ben was a brother of my Great Grandfather Charles Herbert.
