I've lived in the area for some time and going back to the late 60's/early 70's , I think the shops at the top of Noctorum Ave ran as follows (starting at the wool shop)
Wool shop (now a hairdresser)
Newsagent
Chip shop
Grocer's (now a sunbed place)
Chemist
Another grocer(?) - I might be wrong here but now it's a betting shop
Butcher's (Diamond's I think) now it's a video/dvd hire shop

On the corner of Coniston Ave it's been an offy for years but I don't think it was originally-maybe memory is playing tricks on me.
