Does anyone know of a good data base of historic drawings of Shrewsbury? My ancestors all came from the town and had bootmaking shops around Castle Foregate / Tower St

Hello Antony

It would help us to help you if you gave us the name(s) of your bootmaker ancestor(s) together with the dates and places they were in business.  You never know when someone reading your query may be able to offer some help.

In the meantime I would suggest you look your family up in Trade Directories (Kelly's Directory amongst others) so you can try to establish when and where they were in business.

By the way, you say your people were in Tower Street, Shrewsbury but I can't find any reference to any such street.  Where did you find that information?
