Custodial history:
Collection of glass slides were taken and printed by John William Withington, Mr. Hough's great-grandfather. Withington was possibly born in Droylsden, but he certainly lived there in middle life (i.e. early 1900's) as he was active in Trinity Church, he lived in College Avenue. He was in charge of the tinsmiths at 38, Field Street. He worked for Whitworths in Old Trafford possibly as the foreman of a shop making 9'naval guns. Had three daughters, Ada, Mary and Harriet and one son, William. His daughter, Harriet lived at 9, Peel Street, Droylsden and the slides were kept there for some time. Withington's first wife died, he lived with Harriet and then married again and retired to Southport. Information supplemented by Mary Ireland, Mr. Hough's god-mother. Glass Slides.
