I was talking with an "old local" recently and we tried to remember the names of as many of the old CSP shops that we could, including:

Taylor & Lane - Butchers
Robertsons - Butchers (Derek ?)
Harry Flowers - Grocers
Lippiatts - Greengrocers
Darvills (then Paddy's) - Barbers
Mr Milly - Cycles/Repairs
Co-Op - Grocers (Giles Tripp, Mr Allnutt)
Stowells (then Threshers) - Manager: Bob Clements (also the organist at St Joseph's Church)
Ice Cream Parlour
John Benn - Newsagents
Dennis - Watch Repairer
Willoughby's - Shoe Shop
Tellings - Ironmongers (Victor Telling)
George Newman - Bakers
Reddings - Woolshop
Guests - Tobacconists
Claydons - Greengrocers (when it was owned by Dick Claydon)
Andersons - First self-service supermarket in CSP
Botts - Fishmongers (Manager: Eric Stone)
Beesons - Ironmongers (Lower Road)
Andrews - Menswear (when it was in Lower Road)
Picture House - Cinema (Mr Westcott)
Sweets - Chemist
Colins - Fish 'n' Chips (Mr Pigden, taken over by his son)

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

A rather think the subject is from the 50's, from the time when the" Poaches" was the "Baker Arm" maybe back to the time of the "Kings Arms" or the "Carpinters Arms"
