    • It is said that a corner house at 51 Well Street, Hanley was the shop which Smith's mother and father kept. Edward Smith of Well Street was listed as a shopkeeper. What used to be an alleyway along side the shop is now an open narrow road as th e rest of the street has been demolished and apartments were built.
