Herbert's Lad, by the time that photo was taken all the houses at the southern end of Whitefriars Street had long been demolished while Brandish's showroom was extended and much altered compared to how you remember it. I had metal studs put in my shoes by that shop for a camping trip in 1965 so the picture must have been taken after that date. Edited by member, 9th Jun 2016 3:00 pm

There used to be a "Cobblers" shoe repair shop on the Foleshill Road almost opposite Elmsdale Avenue. The owner was, I believe, Mr Roberts. I do remember the lovely smell when entering the shop. The shop was next door to a small house where a good friend and classmate of mine lived. Does anyone else remember Mr Roberts, his shoe repair shop was two doors away from Mr Aubrey the barber.

Does anyone remember the Gibney, directly opposite the East window of St John's Church? Next door was the Catholic Repository, with statues, rosaries and other religious items, presumably much used by the worshippers at St Osburg's Church at the top of Hill Street, and possibly also the High Church members of St John's Church too.
