The horse drawn delivery van has now been replaced by a motor van. I hope the horse was simply pensioned off, but it seems to me that the driver of the motor van is the same Mr Fred Gander who used to operate the horse-drawn van.
Mr Tulley's furniture and linoleum showroom on the first floor has a couple of toddlers high chairs to stop customers making an dramatic exit. Not sure if Health and Safety would approve nowadays!

From deep in the archives I have found a better quality photograph than the original and this has been uploaded above.
The Large Version shows a close up of the shop windows with a large variety of bonnets and other items of feminine attire. No doubt the ladies of the village found the Fitu corset range very fetching, but it seems no examples were put on display in the window.
Before the days of the telephone kiosk one could make telephone calls here according to the swinging sign outside.
