Number 10 was just after the jettied building on the west side. It's on the right of Osmiroid's coloured picture at #177 and the one on the right of this CD picture. Note that the Bullring had it's own numbering.

Brill as usual Helen thanks. Interestingly the relation was a Lazarus Podesta - listed in the 1921 directory as a Furniture Remover but the contact says he developed an Ice Cream shop. He was an Italian Immigrant. Thumbs up

Love the name. At the moment I'm getting Cleophas Ratliff and Cleophas Dullison cropping up in research. It's the sort of name that vanished from this country but sometimes crops up in America. Here's a link to a painting of number 10.

Paul Glover was the chap on FB who was the great grandson of Lazarus Podesta posted earlier. He has just added this pic of him and believes its a 1920's photo possibly at the rear of that shop address at 10 Butcher Row -

I know I've shared some colour-tinted stuff before but had to include this one which was done by FB user Mark Tattam (and shared with his approval) - Really brings the image to life and really shows the state some of the row was in but also highlights signage/wording not previously readable -
