The old tin tab,still there but obviously rebuilt,the building behind is the tong po house,(chinese take away),the gap between houses is Clitharoe st, I lived at No 3 from 1970 onwards. On the left, the gap is Engine shed lane, and opposite would be Baines florest

My father Ernest Maroney b 1905 learnt to mend boots and shoes and sometime, late teens/20s, used (rented?) a tin shack as his work shop till he could move on to better premises. This is the only "tin" building I can see in this collection. Can anyone throw any light on a tin shack on Broughton Rd during this time?

I believe the tin shack originally was a gospel mission hall in Barnoldswick and was dismantled and rebuilt in Skipton, as seen in the photo.
