Thinking back to the 1970s The Cut
has changed in terms of shops quite a lot and I guess this is part of the ongoing change all streets go through.
It would be nice to imagine the market stalls returning one day : you could buy fresh vegetables & salad from the stalls - but I guess The Cut
is a little too narrow these days for market stalls.
I remember and lament the loss of Cooke's Pie & Mash Shop - interestingly some shops have stayed with the same use over the years. The Tote bookmakers used to be an independent bookies called A. Stallion (Arthur I think ) - and it made it onto That's Life once as a shop with a most appropriate name !
