A Memory of Altrincham

The large corner "shop" on the left was the showroom of North West Gas where you could pay your gas bill. This is now Dawsons music and instrument shop.
The corner shop on the right was Hawkins tailors, on two floors. This is now a MacDonalds restaurant.

A memory shared by Bob Cleary , on Feb 9th, 2007.

Hawkins? I remember it as Hepworths The Tailor. I bought my first suit from Hepworths, doesn't fit me any more!
