Yes, Steve has been incredibly helpful and very kind. It would be great to find a photograph of the house or the shop front from back then - I imagine one might have been taken at some point, but what might have happened to it since then, if it exists at all, who knows... We do have a photograph of my great-uncle Jack at work (he worked for Mr Richards) which I believe was taken at 62 TBR, but I'm not certain about that as it's a close up and you can't really see much of where he is, so if you do manage to find a photograph of any kind from that era, both I and my Nan would be thrilled to see it. Thank you so much for looking.
The Old Kent Road
has changed quite a bit over the years, hasn't it? I'm not sure that it's changed for the better, though. My grandparents had their wedding reception there at a pub with the wonderful name 'The World Turned Upside Down' - did you know that at all?
Thanks again, for your help, Tim - very much appreciated.
