Butcher's Shop In North Street - a Memory of Guildford.

I am looking for photos of Guildford in the 50s, particularly North street and wondered if anyone remembered the Butcher's shop in North street in the 50s. I was born there, we lived in a flat over the shop and I have vivid memories of watching the carnival from the window. I also remember there was an abattoir at the back of the shop. I think the shop was called Colebrooks.

We didn't live there for long, possibly around 1948ish - 52 then moved to Walnut Tree Close by the station. Sadly neither place exist any more.

I would be grateful for any memories as I am wondeering if I dreamt it all.
