Mellings bike shop was later taken over by Kay's Army Surplus store before she moved to Darlington Street. They used to sell shoes which were supposed to be leather soles...Some were in fact reconstituted cardboard. If it rained you'd had it. Dubbing for football shoes-- gas masks...army pen knives. Army clothing. Some 10 year old lads sure looked funny dressed as a corporal.
