Photo possibly dating from the early 1960s, looking up County Arcade from Vicar Lane to Briggate. On the left is Cashdisia, a drapers shop which specialised is selling overalls, aprons and uniforms. A little further up the arcade a sign for Redmans grocers advertises shelled nuts; they also sold a large selection of dried fruits. On the right is Hudson Verity, optician, with Curtis Health Foods on the right edge. Towards the Briggate end of the arcade was the Doll's Hospital business of Smart and Son which was also a toyshop. Dolls and Teddy Bears were repaired and the shop was famous for giving loved toys a new lease of life. In the centre a sign can be seen for the Mecca Locarno Ballroom.
