D - a Memory of Tonbridge.
I remember the Domestic Oil Stores in Barden Road. In the 1940's I lived in Norfolk Road.
They sold all manner of things and there were goods outside, brooms etc. I do remember that two sisters ran the shop and used to see them sweeping the pavement outside the shop. I loved the smell of oil whenever I went inside. Unfortunately that is all I can recall at present.
