When I lived on Darlington Street as a little girl, I would regularly toddle up and down the length of the street, calling in all the shops. They all knew me, but sadly you probably won't remember all the shops down there during the 50s
We were more or less in the middle of Darlington Street, facing Harrogate Street (which was cobbled back then) and lived at the back of our shop which sold tellies and Bakelite radios and, when I'd done my visiting on our side, I'd ask my mum to see me across the road, although it was more or less deserted back in those days, and I'd do the length of that side as well, calling in at Norman Leather's. He was a lovely man and he'd let me play a few notes on the piano in the shop and wander around looking at things. I'd sit quietly whilst he played a tune for me, then I'd trundle off again. but he regularly played piano at other times. I think his name above the shop was in gold, as you say.
I was about four years old at the time.
