Linma,I've been racking my brain to remember that name..I used to buy nearly all my clothes there.

linna ,Maureen, the ladies fashion shop you mention was Graffton House,
my sister was a Saturday girl there in the 1950s. On the opposite corner was Makinsons ,always a lovely smell of fresh coffee !
