Ivison's Florist's Shop In The Market Square - a Memory of Lichfield.

My parents had a florist's shop in Market square from 1932 -1962, I can see our Morris van parked on the square, with the Interflora logo & our name clearly shown. I was out in Egypt serving National Service when this photo was taken, but the cars & fashions pictured take me back to that era in sleepy Lichfield. The statue of Dr. Johnson is still in the square, but all the shops have changed & the square is just being resurfaced. I now still have a florist's shop in Bird Street Lichfield. Has anyone any more memories of Lichfield fifty years ago?
