There was a Polish man who ran a hardware shop, always very helpful even if you were only buying two bolts for 50p. I had not been back that way much until 2010, when I was working in Camberwell, and was surprised to so many ministries where there had been shops. There is even a hotel, and some people I know stayed there and really really liked it.Thank you Peter, that shop was absolutely brilliant what they did not know about decorators tools was not worth knowing! memo to self...must get out more!
