Hello Barrie (Mortimer), |
I note that Septimus Knox was the manager in old Walter Wilsonís shop, in 1952. I was surprised to learn from my wife, that he was also the manager of the new Walter Wilsonís store, in St. James Mall, in the Newtown, in 1976, when she worked there.

Signwriting nicely modified by James Goring.
Here's a photo I've just found of my Grandfather's shop at 78 Station Road. The wording above the shop is not very clear but reads "Confectioner J. TUNGATE Fruiterer and confectioner"
One of my few pictures of my Auntie Winnie and my mother, Helen Doreen Tungate. taken I would guess round about 1920.
