Hi Dougie, in the 40s didn't know much about the Downall Green area, apart from going to St Peter's School in Downall Green Road. There was a house somewhere opposite the school with a model railway in the garden & a few doors down from the school was Naylor's shop, their son Walter was in my class. I also remember the Oddfellows, but as for the two shops, my memory fails me. But surprisingly later in the late 60s, I was a bus driver for LUT, at their Atherton Depot and sometimes drove the 55/56 Routes. Leigh, Lane Head, Golborne, Stubshaw Cross, Ashton, Bryn Cross, Sims Road End, the onward to Billinge or Garswood.
