Hello, Mack - many thanks for this. The Oldham Archives very helpfully gave me a copy of the photo of Percy from the Chron when I first started to find out more about him. I think you're right about the Cowhill address - they seem to have occupied both numbers, and I guess  one was the shop. Percy seems to have been associated with Christ Church, Chadderton, and it's possible he went to school there. I plan to look through school records for the Cowhill area next time I'm in Oldham. All the best. Duncan
