Where were Duckle's Buildings?

Corby, who is a minefield of historical Goole information, has provided this map, this map and a photograph of the street

Where were George Street and Couper Street?

These Old Goole streets can be seen on this map kindly provided by Janet from Goole Museum. The streets disappeared during the slum clearances of the 1960's. They can also be seen in the slightly earlier map from the previous answer.

Long shot but have to try again. My gtgrandfather John Palmer was born in Goole in 1835 - only other info is that his father was named William. His life was spent sailing the seas and he obviously left Goole as a lad to go to sea either perhaps with a family vessel or more than likely on one of the ships leaving Goole. His first sighting was married in Guernsey in 1859 and at one time was a pilot probably on a Guernsey vessel? His travels took him to France (Dunkirk) and Durham to name a couple and his family appeared to go with him. No vessel name has ever appeared. On 1871 he was living in Durham (master mariner) and then 1872 back to France where he may possibly have met his death - ship wrecked in a storm and he died apparently (no other info)...can soneone please suggest where I can find John Palmer connected to a vessel - talk was he had his own at some point. He may have started out on a ship going from Goole to France and met up with his in-laws to be then (LeMaitre from Vale in Guernsey). He is a mystery except that he left behind many children!!!!
