Albert Winstanley built and lived in my childhood home in Lytham St Annes named Kingswear (we still have this house). The address is 53 Orchard Rd, St Annes, FY8 1PG. I believe he had offices on St Annes Crescent (Imperial Chambers) as an architect and surveyor for many years. He designed a theater in Crew- the staff of which were kind enough to send me scans of his sketches.

Albert Winstanley was born in Scotland in 1876. He was initially employed in a practice led by Arnold England but soon had his own company with offices at 49 Deansgate Manchester and in Lytham St Annes. From 1919 to 1928 Charles Hamilton Mackeith was his assisant. To the above list can be added a rebuild of the Art Picture Theatre New Mills(1921). He died in 1943.
