I was in there today and saw a date on the outside wall and decided to try to find out a bit more.
Don't know if it's their initials and whether they've been there since the date and if so was there a church next door

Will ask my parents about this one, they both lived on Cleveland street as kids in the 40's.

Reference the plaque WJL, this could be the initials of the founder of the shop, WJ Little and founded in 1877. It has been a paint / decorating shop as long as my Dad can remember.

Searched on Cleveland Street in Google and came up with a map that shows the 'Hall' marked as a church

Seeing this topic brought back a memory of when I was serving my time (Apprenticeship)as a plumber, I was only 16 at the time (67 years ago) and I was sent to Little's to buy a bundle of barstard files, very rough files for filing lead pipes and such, I wasn't sure if I was being Wound up or not, as previously I was asked to go for a Long Stand, which of course didn't exist, and I was there for ages..lol

Yes, probably; a bit older than I am. I think I've still got a couple of barstard (wish the software wouldn't put an 'r' in) files. Another trick after the war was to send the lad to the paint merchant for a tin of camouflage paint.

When I started work we had various types of weighing machines and young new starters were often told to go to the stores for a long weight (wait).
Doubtless anything done similar nowadays in the workplace would get the person responsible a severe reprimand or the sack

That's a pity, I thought I was in the running for the title being 82 in December.
