I lived as a young boy in at 24 Pickup Street, the street to the left with John Baron's on the corner. I remember going into his shop as late as the mid-sixties. It became a café for a short time. I remember listening the Massecheusetts on the jukebox about 1968.

Barons Shop was a Cloggers and shoe shop if you look carefully at the second shop from the left, you will see a large boot outside the top window as an advertising logo this was there in the 50s/early 60s
