Can you name this Grantham street, taken in 1905
Here’s a photo from Chez Miller. The house was on St Catherine’s Road and was originally built by an ironmonger, Mr Martin.
For many years in the 80s & 90s it was St Catherine’s Day Nursery, but was abandoned in the late 1990s.
It fell into disrepair and was demolished around five years ago. Martins Court retirement homes are now on the site.
Known as Elmer House The frontage has now been altered and extended and is now known as Elmer House.it was the home of Dr. Walter Hugh Paterson M.D., his wife and 10 children.
He was a doctor of medicine and surgeon at Grantham Hospital from 1880 until his death in 1907 taking over from his brother-in-law Dr Charles Robbs.
The view is looking from Elmer Street North to the junction of Finkin Street which is running from left to right along the bottom of the picture.
It was Escritt & Barrell estate agents office at one time, who extend and refaced it, adding the rounded corner.
Taken in 1905, well before Watergate House was dreamed up. Looked rather tranquil then
