Re: tannery on Feeder Road,Bristol

My great-grandparents, William and Mary Ann Ashford worked and lived there, after "emigrating" from Devon, about 1880. My Grandfather was born in the Tannery in 1871.

Can't confirm the name Cole's unfortunately Jo,

The Avonside Tannery was in Feeder Road and was owned by P & S. Evans & Co.
