My aunt lived there for years -  no doubt there are people on here who still live in the area and might remember.  Good luck.

I remember it well. I stood in it for at least an hour as a child waiting to be served whilst grown-ups bunked the queue. I decided then that when I grew up I would never knowingly push ahead of a child or older person in a queue.

Deirdre I remember your shop well, I was born in no 42 Iris Street and my brother now has a shop on the opposite corner from where your shop was.   Your name rings a bell to me too  ???   Means I was born 3 doors from where your shop was, small world :)

If my memory serves me well, there was also a shop in Cavendish Street called Cunninghams, maybe at the top of Oakman Street  ??? we used to get our turkeys there at Christmas and I can remember being out the back with my father there shortly before Christmas and watching him ringing the turkey's neck  :o I was horrified at the time!  I still eat turkey though  ::)

It was Hursons at the top of Oakman Street, I think. (?) Cunningham's was on the next corner if my memory serves me right opposite the butchers at the bottom of Harrogate Street. One of the ladies who served in Cunningham's used to call everybody - and I mean everybody - "daughter".
