patb: Hi, This photo brought back a lot of memories, I was working there when I left school in 1957, it was a few shops below Woolworths, I think there was a Boots the chemist next could have been opposite the police station ? the owner was Mr Ploynick Aug 8, 2014 9:06:55 GMT
Jerry: Hi Abby. Kelly's 1956 lists a fish shop at 524 Green Lane, next to 4th Avenue, run by Mrs Jean Whitaker. That's the only one that fits the bill ;) Jul 9, 2014 12:37:29 GMT
abby: Hello Jerry . Re your ref. to Fish shop on 3rd Avenue there was a fish and chip shop on the next corner which I believe was called 2nd Avenue .Every Friday I had to fetch the fish from there for our dinner. From Abby Jul 9, 2014 10:27:40 GMT
