One of the three streets on the Longhill Estate built to house early steelworkers and isolated from the rest of the town. The other two were Portland and Hill Streets. They were demolished just before World War 2.
Taken from Hughes corner shop at 70 Florence Street in the early 1900s, the image shows Mary Ann Hughes who married George Henry Hughes. The shop was still open until, along with the other two Wagga streets, Florence Street was demolished.
This photo is from an American lady, Linda Hughes Hiser, who has done a lot of family research and also luckily has ancestors who kept photos !
