Archive Notes:

In 1900 two houses on this site burned down. In the 1907 rate book, it is shown as a new brick-built house with a shop at ground floor level, and the original owner occupier was a barber, George Lincoln English. His married daughter, Elsie Bradbury, inherited the house when George Lincoln English died in 1945. Her husband, Ronald Bradbury, opened the hardware shop there in 1947-8. The house was then called 'Midway'. In 1957 the Scott-Dows bought the shop and put it in their name, and it was still trading under this name in 1977. Later it sold skin care products (trading as Pampered Lady); became a Home Video shop (1988), a health and relaxation clinic in 2003, and now (2108) it is a nail art and beauty salon.
