Archive Notes:

When Harris's shop and stores (and no 95). Photos taken in 1910, 1925.

This was a house built in the 18th century. By 1876 it had become a shop kept by Joshua Harris, who sold millinery, grocery, ironmongery and medicines. You could even have a tooth pulled out for a shilling! It remained in the Harris family until 1967 when Mr. J C Kelly took it over and called it James’s Supermarket. Nos. 95 and 97 were then separated No. 95 remaining a store. The entrance was altered, the garden wall demolished and Barclay's Bank built. Both properties are now houses.
