History of 116 Gwydir Street
In 1904, F.W.Scriven, tailor, lived in 116 Gwydir St (see Spaldings directory).
In 1913, Louis George Ginn, engine driver lived here (see Spaldings directory).
An email (2010) from Colin Martin:
My Great Grandfather Frederick William Scriven, a Tailor, born 1846, lived at No. 83
in 1891 with his two daughters.
Then by 1898 he had moved across the road to No.116.
I thought you may like to see an old family photo taken about 1898/99, it may even
have been taken at 116, but we don't know for sure.
Frederick is the gent with the beard, his second wife Mahala is seated in the middle.
My Grandmother is standing far left.
