What was the name of the antique shop at the point of the triangle.(now a solicitors)
I can remember it being there in the 80s but not sure if it was there pre 60s.
Have a look at the small windows at the top of most of the buildings - are they for attic rooms

Was the antique shop called
W.Courtney & Son who may have moved there from 150 and 156 Chester Street when that area was demolished?

No 104 was an antique shop in the mid to late 1950s if not earlier.

When I was married 1970 we bought a dining room suite from Bouchers. Vaguely remember asking for a discount if I paid cash for it and got a discount.
Think stores prefer you to buy on the never never nowadays

Has anyone been upstairs in any of these buildings - would like to know how big the rooms are where the small windows are and would they have been servants quarters?
