Comment:
After this building was demolished the firm of William Short moved to Lavender Walk and was taken over later by Benthoms Body builders . I went to work for them in 1944 as an apprentice and old Mr Short was kept on in the paint shop by the then owners Mr Benn and Mr Thompson i stayed there until i was called up for my national service in 1948.
