W Hunt Bookseller 26 Great George Street


I am researching where my Father lived in 1925, the only information I have is W. Hunt Bookseller 26 Gt George street.

But in 1911 census there is no number 26 does anyone have any information about this number why it was missing in 1911 and appeared in 1925 and whether there was a Bookseller named W Hunt Stores back then and when was it demolished

Thank you in anticipation of any information

  1. Hello,

    with reference to the Kelly`s (Gores) trade directories for 1911 to 1922 there is no reference to 11 Gt George Street from 1911 until 1920. This may be because the property was vacant or demolished.

    In 1911 numbers 5A, 7, 9, 13 and 15 Gt George Street are listed but no number 11.

    From 1911 number 9 Gt George Street was occupied by Thomas Jones Refreshment Rooms until 1922 when numbers 9 and 11 are listed as Thomas Jones Refreshment Rooms.
