John W. Logan of 50 Norfolk Street, Sheffield

Searching online, I found the London Gazette for 13 March 1874. It contain this notice connected with the death of my hero J.W. Logan's father.

John Logan senior had begun life as a railway navvy and become a contractor. The fact that he died at Lansdown Crescent, Bath, confirms that he had done well for himself.

But what interests me most is that it gives an address where J.W. Logan lived before he moved to East Langton Grange.

It is 50 Norfolk Street, Sheffield. Norfolk Street is in the city centre and is home to Sheffield's Unitarian chapel. But Google Street View suggests no. 50 is no longer there.
