This corner shop was owned during and after the second world war by MR.and Mrs. Swallow.They sold just about everything from drawing pins to wood chips to light your coal fire. For regular customers some credit or 'tick'as it was known was allowed. A real 'open all hours' store

I remember the shop as "Swallows" and have vivid memories of Mr. Kay's van. I recall one day peering into the large pram pictured and the child contained within burst into tears! I immediately ran away to my house(no.19 south-mount st.)in case the local bobby was about.!
