I LIKE THE SUPER MINI RON.THANKS FOR THE OLD PHOTOS.
Ron. Did the shop on the corner, sell womens undies vests etc. Along with other habadashery items
The shop on the right was Ted Browns - Its where you went for wellies in winter and sandals in summer. You could buy anything in the shop from vests and knickers to pinnys.
Ted Brown was a white haired old man and his wife also served in the shop. I liked going into the shop with my mam because it meant I might be getting something new to wear - even if it was just socks!
I believe that shop was not Brown's I think it was Wilding's, you were right about the old man and his wife, they had a daughter named Dorothy.
Old Scholser I was born in 1946 and during that time until the Post Office took over the shop it was always known as 'Ted Browns'.....it was a brilliant shop to go in. Original floorboards and goods hung up everywhere. He sold most items of clothing.
The Newsagents was Henry's when I was a child - it's where I went for my 'Schoolfriend'
