    I remember going into Lyon,s shop to buy distemper,(the modern version of emulsion,) and being served by Miss Lyon,who wore a khaki overall and a mans trilby,and she weighed it out in brown greaseproof paper,the place smelled of linseed oil & putty.

    what a sad sight with so many happy memories of the herbal drinks like sarsaparilla, dandelion & burdock etc. Jack Hill (1940-1944)

    It's an age thing. Looking at this photo reminds me of looking at Victorian/Edwardian photos when I was a kid, when I thought "that looks ancient".

    Hot dandelion and burdock and american cream soda were also on the menu. There wasn't a loo. I can recall having to pee in the park before getting the 60/81 down Queens Drive.
