Harrison's Newsagents The Stow

I wonder if anyone can recall Harrison's Newsagents at 92 The Stow? It was opened by my father in December 1953 and sold in November 1980. From 1956 it was run by our manager - Bert Wood (sadly, he had to leave in November 1978 for a variety of reasons). It was then managed by Derek Elmer until we sold the business. I believe it now operates as a Wedding Dress Supplier. Any information / memories would be much appreciated. John Harrison.

The whole area was so lovely back then. A beautiful place to bring up children. It used to ...Read full memory

At various times they were both sides of the bridge and on both banks. On the left bank of this picture there was the swimming pool and on the ...Read full memory

Tanner's Fabrics And The Coffee Roasters

My mother and I used to buy fabrics from Tanners Fabrics in Little Walk. It was a fire-trap - fabrics piled from floor to ceiling and very little room to move. Mr. Tanner always knew where everything was though and Mrs. Maxtead worked there too. The coffee roasters was a few doors down on the same side ...Read full memory
