Me too. Clearly there were a lot of babies. Alternatively, maybe she started as a draper and then changed to a baby and wool shop?

The Maypole shop Broadgate, grocery shop, always had the big tiles above them dark green, and the ironwork above that.

Bit late to respond, but I've only just joined. Christopher J Bee had a photograpic shop in the Lower Precinct from c.1964-1968. He was in partnership with John Pyle & they also ran Sherriff Construction. CJ Bee had a Chevrolet Impala convertible & John Pyle a yellow E type. They did a lot of business mailorder selling cine camera kits (Kohka 8mm zoom camera & a Realtone 8mm projector), all for 39 guineas! The death knell came when Dixons opened round the corner in Smithford Way. He just couldn't compete! He sold the shop to his hitherto manager KJ Fuell, who ran it for a couple of years. Chris had properties in C'an Pastilla, Majorca, including a night club, & I believe he went to live there after the sale of the business. He was certainly "a man about town" guy, but Jeannie, his, wife kept a tight reign on him.
