The owner of the Bazaar was one Solly Gilman who would 'hold court' most Saturdays in the centre of the shop. Taylor's bread shop was at the end of the block; I was always fascinated by the fluorescent fish paste they used to sell. The women who ran the shop were Jean and Margaret.
My dad bought the shop on the opposite corner, that had been a hardware shop and turned it into a second-hand furniture shop. However, he kept the huge paraffin (Esso blue) tank at the back of the shop along with a big old silver till for the half a crowns it cost, for a gallon. I often had to serve it as a young teenager.

Then Marshall & Weetch in Ford, where we'd go for broken biscuits on the way to school. Next door was the sweet shop where Bonesy's mum worked - Carr Meadow Hey. Ken

I used to love going in there as a child they had a tube type container they put the vouchers in when you paid and it would 'disappear' up a pipe
