Hoping someone can tell me the name of the cake shop that used to be under the little covered area next to Lloyds Bank and Oakenholt Road. I am interested in the 1930 - 1940 time period. I know there was a cake shop there in the early 60's at the time of Les Turner's tobaconnists and I believe this one was later to become a Barber's shop. My mother remembers that she used to buy cakes from it pre WW2 days.

Thanks Bertie1, I remember the cake shop from when I was a child in 1950's
loved going there for lovely cream cakes.
Interesting that I remember the name of a wine merchant must have been looking forward for things to come.!!!

Thanks for that Bert1

I remember my mum telling me the family lived in Meols - actually one of the first large houses on the right after the Meols stretch and that they had a son called Jack who was friends with mum and her brothers but she couldn't remember the surname.

Isn't it funny how the memory plays tricks - very hard to remember when changes actually took place.
