Post Office And Markets - a Memory of St Helens.

I remember that just opposite to this photo was the main Post Office, with wooden floors, which echoed when a customer walked on them.
Further along where the white building is, if you went left, there was an old shop selling stamps, then going further there was the covered market, right through to Bridge St; on Beechams car park was an open market, that car park is now part of St Helens college; I always remember a stall there that used to sell fresh muscles, prawn etc., the same firm which I believe used to sell his produce in pubs and labour clubs around the town, such a welcomed delight!!
