Re: Header Photo 'Then & Now'
As Alan says Sharps the Butcher had a big shop on the corner of Hainingwood Terrace and Station Road, the shop in the picture, was for many years owned by a chap called John Brown, he also owned the newsagents further along on Station Road and the greengrocers on the corner of Coxon Street & Station Road, now an Indian Takeaway - before leaving school I worked for John Brown as a Saturday girl in the shop you have as today's header, also in the newsagents.
