Number 50 Holland Street 1881 – Miss Eleanor Page, Haberdasher

Please note Caldwell Street was called Holland Street in 1881 – see here.

Kelly’s Directory 1881 tells us that at 50 Holland street lived Miss Eleanor Page, a haberdasher (sold sewing articles, such as needles, buttons, thread, ribbons etc)

Expanding on the info taken from Kelly’s Directory and looking at the Census we find out a little more…

Due to the fact that the Census for 1881 for this part of the street is damaged I have had to examine the census from 1871 and 1891 to see if she is listed on that. Miss Page is not on the 1871 Census but luckily she appears on that of 1891. There is hardly anything about her or her fellow occupant, also called Page, presumably her sister.
