Bearman's Department Store - a Memory of Leytonstone.

I have very fond memories of Bearman's and the Christmas Wonderland ride is still very vivid in my mind 50 odd years later.
My grandmother took me there to buy bridesmaid headdresses for my ballet classes and I was fascinated by the cartons containing money from the tills, whizzing overhead to a small kiosk where it was collected. I always felt sorry for the people in the kiosks as they were stuck in a small space on their own, missing out on the hustle and bustle of the store. My grandmother had an account there so we only seemed to go on Blue Cross days and Christmas! Happy days!
