Dog and Partridge
Market Street, Mottram, about 1890. The white building on the right with the lamp outside was the Dog and Partridge beerhouse, which was demolished in 1895 when 65 – 75 Market Street were built. For many years it was kept by the SHAW family who combined beer selling with shoemaking.

In 1881, John Jackson SANDIFORD was the landlord, husband of Mary RHODES, but in 1891, it was Samuel HOLT who was mine host, husband of Elizabeth BRADDOCK. By 1901, he was a shoemaker, so there may be a connection with the SHAW family.
