Where do I start, Brilliant crisp clean shots you've put on, I'm guessing these are 1974 with what's written on top, I weren't even thought of then, but I remember this and the other scene's as a young lad in the early 80's. Cheers!
Boots was an eyesore in Makinsons Arcade and for once I'm pleased to say it looks better now.
Congratulations on a great set of photos, Marguerite.
I remember taking my film from my honeymoon, (3 days in York...we couldn't afford anyting else!)...into that Boots and saying my new name, Mrs. Roberts, which sounded so strange! I later worked at Boots in Market Street from 1992 to 2007.
Oh the amount of wool that I've bought from that Readicut shop at the top of Makinson's arcade. That photo brought back a lot of memories.
I can remember buying a pair of bright yellow bags from slaters. My Dad said if I wanted to go out dressed like Coco the clown it was ok, as long walked on the other side of the road away from him.
The grease from the chicken rotisserie shop made those paving flags outside of it like a skating rink especially when they got wet when rain water got trudged in. Was it called the Chick House?
