  • Date not known
  • 1909
Archive Notes:

Photo showing 'Rellew' & 'Ansara' and no 56 on the left, also a postcard sent to May Munt in March 1909 in which there are no cars and 44 High Street was the Railway Tavern.

As to the shop. Previously, Mr Stamp, who owned Ansara and lived in adjacent Rellew, sold shoes in the shop; then Mr Emm was a chemist; later Mr Putt, shoemaker; then Kathy Hawley Antiques (later, perhaps, run by someone else as 'Long Ago'), then Telephone and Office Solutions and, at another time, as a hairdresser, first 'Linda and Avril', then 'New Image'. In 2008, the shop traded as 'Goochie', perhaps selling shoes? Now (2018) vacant.
