Among the other shopkeepers on this side of the road was William Organ the tobacconists at No. 67 who were in business for many years and, next door, Mr. Mack who opened a shoe business in what was the old sweet shop. A Mr Harold Glue had the cafe where Woolworth’s opened their store.

The store closed before 1972 as it is not listed on the store list. I don’t the building exists today as I cannot see it on Google Street View.

    …. Woods Grocers once stood on the opposite corner of Albert Street in the late 1960s. Bohm Pork Butchers continued trading into the 1970s as well as Organ’s Newsagents. Mack’s Shoe Repairer was next door then Woolworths at No. 71-73, which had opened a store in Victoria Road in the early 1950s. The grocers Four Seasons was at No. 77 and Hammer’s Amusements was at No. 83. Sayers had a shop at No. 85, the Wine & Spirits Co-Op was at No.89 and on the corner of Mason Street was Barclays Bank. All these buildings between Albert Street and Mason Street have since been demolished and new housing now occupies the site…..
