Hi Elaine no Radcliffes was for sure on the Downing, Clare ,Sidney Road side of Hawthorne Road opposite
the South Park.As Maureen described Mr Radliffe used to rent out books..When we used to walk home from the Grammar
up Balliol Road Mr R,s son would peek in the shop to see if his dad was talking if so he would come to our mates house in Downing Road
along with Tom Kerr(RIP),Ken Walkley(RIP) and Harry Fung whose dad had the laundry just by the CO-OP on that end of Hawthorne Road.
Got Sheila going now trying to remember the name of that big sweet shop as when they lived in Westminister Road they attended St Richards
and used to go there via Hawthorne,Wadham and Miranda Roads
Another GREAT sweetie place was Joe Murphys on Miranda Road between Beatrice and Benedict Streets next door to Nelly's Veggies.
Could get Bassetts Sherbet Fountains there for three ha'pence Bought one some time ago in Victoria at the British Sweet Shop
