Yeovil, Princess Street c.1950 - a Memory of Yeovil.

I well remember Yeovil as a boy in the 1940s and this lovely view of Princess Street brings back many memories. The road was actually the A30 road from London to Exeter running through the town and would often be clogged with traffic in the summer. The street had lovely shops including Genges on the left which became Redwoods toy shop. This was always more of a classier street than the nearby Middle Street. Soyers fishmongers shop was further up on the right hand side selling lovely fresh fish.  Derek Phillips
