Abbeydale Road

Does anyone remember a large building from the late 1940's at the junction of Arnside Rd and Abbeydale Rd. I seem to think it was a council or government office where ration books were issued. It was on the site that is now a garage.

Thanks but I think the CO OP was on the other side of the Rd at the junction with Barmouth Rd.

It looks like there were 2 Co op sites then in that area, the street no 665 matches the one I am thinking of. It would make sense if it were the Co op that ration books could have been obtained there

Looks like you have solved it. I have recollections of going there when I was very young late 1940's, it was a dark grim old building not like a shop more like offices.

Usually, but not always on the 1950's OS maps a 'Ruin' reperasents a building damaged in the blitz.
