A Whole Lot for Sale!
Sale Sale Sale!!! Whilst looking through some old records recently , I came across this publication produced in 1919 relating to the sale of a number of businesses and properties. I am not going to say to much as you will see be reading through the publication , that it holds some interesting descriptions and names of people living in these properties. So I simply share this document with you and encourage you to read and as always it can be downloaded from the flip book if you want to read it at your own leisure or want to print it out (downloads as a PDF - and it is a high quality scan). I also share below a poster of 1859 describing the sale of properties in Gresley Row. Again there is little for me to say except please have a read and if you wish take a download to re-use or closer inspection. Its scanned to high resolution. So please enjoy! And finally I share another poster relating to the sale of properties and lands in Boar Street, Wade Street and Bakers Lane. I am unsure of the year exactly but clearly early 1800's to middle 1800's i feel. Its worth a read as the descriptions given are enlightening. Its scanned to a high resolution and you are able to download and re-use via the flip book If you do have anything to add about these documents then please do tell , maybe a relatives property? Maybe you have a story about one of the properties? I would love to hear In the meantime It all about Lichfield so enjoy :-)
