Please note Hillyard Street was called Russell Street in 1881 – see here.
Kelly’s Directory 1881 tells us that at 15 Russell Street was Mr John Law, a general grocer.
Expanding on the info taken from Kelly’s Directory and looking at the Census we find out a little more…
Curiously I cannot find Mr Law and his family on the Census of 1881, perhaps they moved in the time between Kelly’s Directory and the Census of 1881 being undertaken. I did find them on the Census of 1871 however, see below:
