Dinah Wisemans Shop, View from Bridge Road

For the quaint bits of old Stockton I am indebted to the kindness of Mr J.H Jackson a veteran amateur photographer of this town. The shop at the northern end was at one time occupied by Barney Keenan, a second hand clothes dealer, while the shop at the southern end was occupied by one Dinah Wiseman, a famous maker of brandy snaps. In the foreground is an old Stocktonian, resting on his handcart, he has passed his 80th year yet is still toddling about, though fast nearing the goal of his earthly pilgrimage?Photograph and extract from Heavisidess Almanack 1904

  1. Interesting Alan ,,the building on the right is similiar to t7762(left of centre) and t238(right side)and appears to be on the site of the Empire.

  2. Has anyone any idea where this shop was?—– It looks as though it is situated where the traffic lights are at the end of the High Street.
