Those Were The Days - North Street a century ago

THIS week we feature an old photo of part of North Street. The board to the left bears the name Baines - so could this be where Baines garage used to be, near the corner of Carlisle Street?.

The 19th July edition featured a photo of a group celebrating VE Day. Mrs Maureen Airy, now living in Looe, Cornwall, contacted us with some names. On the back row (left) is Mrs Hilda Newbert holding Michael Newbert, Maureen herself, Dougy Coggle, Doreen Timby (holding baby) and Babett Jarvis; second row (second from left) Doreen (Totty) Hollingsworth, four along from her is Annie Dewick; front row third and second from right are Tony Morris and Richard Dewick.
