    You can see the 2nd picture is the old building before it was rebuilt into the one on the left. In 1865 the shop was run by Robert Riches who ran it as a Tobacconist and along with his wife who worked from the shop as a ladies Hat maker. In 1900 the shop became a Barbers run by Rackham and Barnard. By 1932 the shop had become a Fancy Draper's run by Elinor and Louise Cook but by the 1960's the shop was Taylor's Motor Factors. In recent years it's been an electrical shop a Florists called Pamela’s Petals and Sew Fabric, but by 2016 as you can see from the 3rd picture it was a Polish Food Shop.
