A long time ago there was a laundry or "bagwash" shop on the corner of Meymot Street and Colombo Street then proceeding towards Bkackfriars Road was a greengrocers, Minnie's shoe repairers, a barber shop, lastly called "Air Aid", a graphic designer of some sort, and on the corner of Blackfriars Road a trade union branch "Ruling" of the NUPWB.
I will not be offended if anybody corrects, me rather the opposite.

Ah yes, I remember the shoe repairers. Whilst we are remembering the area Bunhouse, what was on the site where the newish houses are on Hatfields that go round into Roupell Street?

Karen,
There were houses going from the viaduct towards Roupell Street, The first of them was a large house, 3 floors I think, with two small commercial premises on ground level, one was a small caff that did workmens food like bacon rolls etc and their seating was a bench against the wall on the outside, you sat on the bench or had a take-away. Next door was Sid's the barber. Then 2 storey houses with a basement, in the middle was a very narrow brown painted betting shop, a couple more houses and then on the corner of Roupell and Hatfields a hardware store. Turn left into Roupell Street and there was Coopers the greengrocers and then a newspaper shop.
