Being at the top of Drury Street, Thompson's shop (now the Chinese
Takeaway), was our local shop. I wish I had a pound for every errand I
ran for my mother to that shop. Annie Thompson was very tall with
glasses and Ginnie was quite short by contrast. I seem to remember a
chap call Jack Gilbert lived with them, he always wore a bow tie.
Recollections of the shop was a long counter facing the door with a
second counter across to the left as you walked in. Behind the long
counter were rows of mahogany drawers and most things you wanted came
out of one of those drawers. There was always a chair at the end of
the counter for those customers in need of a sit down.
