1904. View of Main Street in 1904. On the left is the Temperance Hotel at number 2 Main Street. A sign reading "Shadwell Temperance Hotel" is displayed on the gable end. It was a favourite meeting place for local people and dances were organised in the large room at the rear of the property. Wrestling matches were also held here. The building opened onto a field which was a popular venue for Sunday School outings, games and picnics. In the years of World War 2 Shadwell A.R.P. Centre operated from the former Temperance Hotel. It is thought to date from the 1860s and was originally built as two cottages by mason, Edward Tarbotton. By 1776 they were occupied by James Stead and his family when they became known as Stead's cottages. They were converted to the Temperance Hotel 1889 and it was run by local man, George Wilson Junior. It was not until 1930 that the name changed to Temperance Cottage. On the right, part of a row of five brick-built terraced houses is visible, numbering from 1 to 9 Main Street in an odd-numbered sequence. The houses stand at the junction with Holywell Lane and are shown on an OS map dated 1908. Courtesy of Shadwell Local History Society.
