Used to be the Midland Bank in the fifties.
The Blue shop---Is it still the Post Office?

Banks and Monasteries always have the best buildings in the area.Is there some connection.

The building next door has not been the post office for a long time.
It relocated to the Co-op when that was built and when Tesco took over it moved to what used to be Rudd's printers in Worthington St.

I seem to remember the bank being Martin's, back in the 50s. Just up from the Post Office (as was) used to be Baron's toy shop - a looking- through-the-window delight for kids of my generation, in the 1950s. We had a teacher from the family that owned the toy shop at Argyle St. primary school around then. Surprisingly, she was called Miss Baron.
