H Mountford Chemists

A Memory of Barnet

My Great Uncle, Harry Mountford, left Nottingham in the early 1930's and came to New Barnet where he opened up a Chemist Shop at 16 Station Road, New Barnet and then another one at 6 Potters Road. He ran the Chemist shops until his retirement in 1962. To my surprise I recently found a Chemist shop bearing the Mountford shop a short distance away at East Barnet Road. If anyone has a picture of Station Road or Potters Road showing his shop in the period of 1930's -1960's I would really like to hear from you. I am also looking for an advert of the business during this time too.
