The photo below is from Roger Watling and shows his great grandfather's shop at 31 London Road in North End. This is where Superdrug is now (Jan 2014).


This photo from Phil Bennett is of his grandmother in North End in the 1930s.

My mother grew up in North End 1912 onwards. My parents married at the old St Mark's in 1947 - does anyone know why it was demolished and rebuilt?
