#85 I lived on Grove road, late 70's early 80's one of my mates dad was the manager of the supermarket, I think it was called Liptons then. I am not sure but I think his name was Kennedy.

Worked that one as well Ray,..........Liptons became part of the same set up as Marsdens/Farrands,called 'Savemore' when i was there 68 ish.

Mr Yelland was the Manager and i think Mick Patman took over from him,

I think the photo is Goose gate not Carlton Street.

Carlton Street is quite short running from Victoria Street/Pelham Street to Heathcoat Street

I think the photograph was taken from the corner of Brightmoor Street

Yes Pooles was pretty well opposite George Street. I suppose where the picture was taken from depends on how long the photographers lens was! Wasn't there another tool shop down there?

edit: remembered it as I pressed post. It was Gillotts. Always seemed to have loads of scissors
