Canal Street used to have its own Police Barracks and its own Picture Palace.

 My father once worked for Joe McCullough of Number 19 who was a carpenter. 

The list of residents from 1914 includes one such person at that address, who, I conclude must have been the father of the tradesman in question.

I’m sure there will be names here familiar to you also.
