I also grew up in Danson Rd. I also remember those lovely little shops. One memory I have of that shop was when I was five years old I went walkabout with my pram, much to the horror of my father, who was busy buying a few things, didn't see me leave the shop. I had a bag of suger in my pram and ended up being picked up by a policeman and taken to Carter street police station. I also remember the old swimming baths. Oh what great days they were.
