was it Annie Brittons Daughter (blonde hair in a bun) that worked in Prentices Dentists across the road?
Hi, Gerry. I don't know if she worked in the dentists.....wasn't it Milner's?.....but she did have blonde hair in a bun. She was quite artistic and used to do the shop-window out beautifully with crepe paper decorations.
It was Milners, When I went there was a dentist named Prentice (Prentice the Dentist)Thats how I remembered it and Miss Britton was the lady that led you through to man himself then another nurse held me down while she applied the gas mask I hated it !!!
How well I remember Annie Britains'. Always the smell of parafin when you went into the shop.
i remember annie britton's well, i was in there buyin some toffee the day president kennedy got shot and it came over the radio. The shock on her face !!
