West View above (central), a side view. Queen Street or Defiance Brow is seen on the right heading up to Palmerston Street or Great High Street depending when this photo was taken (probably taken from Beeston Brow).

1906. Victor Newman (or Norman) Brindley MRCS LRCP lived at West View.

1911. Henry Johnson aged Twenty seven lived at West View. He was an Irish Physician and Surgeon from county Donegal. Also living there was his servant Agnes McArdle aged nineteen from county Armagh. Henry does not seem to have been in practice in Bollington where the main doctor Dr Main was at Brook House where he lived and had a small surgery.
