Henry Lever’s House on Rochester Street — Sherri Iona

Here is another for a question. Does this house still exist? Not far from you on Rochester. My great great grandfather Henry Lever built it with his brother. I don’t recognize the names of the people in the picture, taken after 1906.

Yes Sheri it does!!!

I have a letter written by Henry in 1897 to a minister in Scotland requesting his help regarding a legal claim to the Lever estate in Manchester England. Actually just found, he built it with his son Reynolds Lever. They called him Ren.
