Audsley and Samuel Gomersal, founders of the Mineral water works in Low Street. (Tingley)
Black & White imageUndated. Studio portraits of Audsley and Samuel Gomersal who founded the Mineral Water Works in Low Street, off Chapel Street. They were the sons of coal miner, John Gomersal and his wife Sarah. The 1881 Census records them living with their parents and siblings in Haigh Moor Road when in their twenties and their occupations are listed as Mineral Water Manufacturers. They both married and Audsley and his wife had four children. By 1901 the two brothers were living close to the manufacturing plant in Low street. Audsley's occupation was given on the 1901 Census as a 'Mineral Water Manufacturer' and Samuel as a 'Yeast Dealer'. A map of 1954 names the Mineral Water Works as 'Magpie Works'.

Portman Street, where Fred Swaine once lived, runs between the buildings from the junction with Chapel Street, which cuts across from left to right. The roof in the foreground, left, belongs to the Cricket Pavillion in the park. Copyright Fred Swaine.
