Memories of Dunstable, Broad Walk c1965

I remember Waitrose from my childhood, every Saturday afternoon I would come here with my parents to do the weekly shop. Then nip over to George Orts for some of their lovely pastries. Little did I realise that I would end up in the bakery trade. Down by the clock there was a large Boots Chemist to the right. There were quite a few shops in The Quadrant but I can not remember many of them.

I remember Rumbelows shop on the same side as Waitrose. The Golden Egg restaurant ? Opposite that was a bakers (Geo-ort, I think?) and a photo shop (Dormans, I think?) and Martins newsagents.
