Hi, I cant remember the name. I seem to recall lots of people behind the counter, maybe mum, dad and kids?. Also was it bottles of sterilised milk in a metal crate by your feet? Just got to much time on my hands remembering LOL. Cheers

The shop in question was in the 50's known as Pearce's, then it was taken over by the Bond family, then in 60's it was owned by Jim Wylie , then Jack Sheridan took it over until it was demolished in the 70's. Hope that is helpful.

YUP, I remember it clearly as Pearce's in the late 40s, early 50s. Used to use it frequently if they were short on anything at our normal "local shop" Sherry's at the corner of Kelvin and Fairfax Roads. It was also handy from My Auntie Florrie's house which was through the second gate on the right hand side of the picture .... and about 20 paces from the door of Ma Katen's Pub ( The Mona Castle ) on the corner of Percy and Wheatland Lane.
