From left.
The first shop was a small grocer/sweet shop called The Mile Tree.
The second shop was Miss Power's, another grocer/sweet shop.
The third shop was a Chemist, and as Cambria said later Viking Marine.
The fourth shop was Perrys, Ships Chandlers and Sailmakers. This is where Anne Keegan used to work.
The fifth shop was Hernans. A great toy shop, amongst other things.
I delivered papers to all of them.

I know, but sorry I'm obsessed with this sculpure! So Powerful! This Sculpture was hidden away in a crypt in Paris during WW2 to prevent it from being melted down to make munitions! Phew!

Sorry for being totally ignorant, I do love seeing that sculpture when you post it, but where is it so I can see it for real??
