Naming The Shops

Can anyone name the shops from this end towards the far end.

Crossing The Bridge

Lived in North Seaton and remember clearly the excitement (and danger), of crossing the bridge by the boards underneath the bridge; especially when the train driver would see us and deliberately let off steam overhead.

Happy Days

My nana & grandad lived in Pont St, we used to shop at Walter Wilkins, for best butter, cut in a slab. I live in Australia, but my heart, is still in that corner were I used to walk up to the bait box (fish & chip shop) where Nana used to work. Happy days, happy days.
