My recollection is that this shop was part way down Exmouth Street on the right as you progressed from Claughton Road to the junction of Watson/Conway street? My younger friend is convinced it was on the opposite side of the street. Has any body got photos?

O'Kells was at the top of Exmouth Street, where the fire station is/was. (I believe even that's been pulled down now). It was definitely on the left, going down away from Claughton Road towards Conway Street. It was a brilliant shop, especially for Baby layettes!

Seems like O'Kell was on both sides of Exmouth Street at different times-thanks for all replies.

I am going back in time to the mid to late fifties regarding the location of O'kells when it was on the left going towards Conway Street.

What memories the name O'Kells brought back to me. I am 85 years old and I am sure when I was a child it was on the left side of the street. I, too, remember the lovely Baby sets hanging outside. There used to be an iron drinking fountain set into the wall with an iron cup attached to a chain somewhere in that area. Can you imagine such a thing today?

Since I am not in England, I don't know what the area looks like today, so can't compare.

This is my first post.

To save any arguments, in the 1971 phone book it was the other side of the road.
