Hello Nova, are you still with us? Just found a little snippet on the internet. Friswells picture gallery. I found it quite interesting. Thumbs up LOL, Just found out Alma St is named after The Battle of Alma in the Crimean war, Lord Raglan played his part in that too. Cheers

In the sixties early seventies, on the corner of Raglan street and Vine Street was a little grocery shop which was owned by Mr Bayliss, a tall man with brown storeman coat like in 'Open all Hours' comedy. He was very friendly, to old and young, and the shop was full to bursting, veg out front and small bags of coal by the door. I lived at 15 Lower Ford street, so I ran errand for mum and neighbours, so I was in there loads, also Mrs Swains sweet shop a few doors down. Lovely memories.

Hello coopers70, You lived dead opposite to me in Lower Ford St, we were at number 30. In 1959 we moved to 13 Raglan St, the shop next door to Swains. I used to buy my ice-cream from Swains as our shop had no freezer, no room for one. Every inch of space was taken up, floor to ceiling, with anything you might buy but alas, no free ice-cream. Thumbs up
