Right up our Street!
As part of their geographical and historic studies of the local area, Class 4 drew field sketches of the houses on Dudley Road. They then studied the census data from 1891 and discovered who lived on this street. There were bookbinders, agricultural workers, a train driver, several tailors, a school governess, a green grocer, a coal merchant, a coach painter, an iron founder as well as a lady who ran a lodging house. They also discovered that several of the houses had housekeepers or domestic servants living within the household.
