Bowers family home 1901 - Peakes Lower Row
From the 1901 census the Bowers family were living inPeakes Row, Tunstall, Stoke on Trent, from a little research I found the address on some old maps, and the house would have been off Watergate Street. The property looked as if it was owned by Thomas Peake who was a brick and tile manufacturer, hence the name of Peake appearing....... According to the info I have the area was redeveloped in the 1930's and all we have left are the factories of Johnson's tiles.
