I remember the paper shop next to the No 8 bus stop on Adderly Rd. opposite the Tilt Hammer pub. I can't remember their name. There was a greengrocer called Baily very near to it in the 1940,s but it may have changed Hands. The driveway near these shops went down to our bakehouse and the backs of the shops in High st. Chaplins, Bentley the Taylor  etc.


The bus drivers and 'inspectors' used to walk down the driveway to get hot bread rolls at the Bakehouse. This about late 40's early 50's.

Also by the number eight terminus was a cafe run by Mr and Mrs Brittain, they had three children, Susan, Carol and Michael. My mother in law used to work for them in the cafe. There was also a barbers where my husband used to get his hair cut.

Hi, I know this an old post but I had to reply. There is a picture on page 10 of a factory building. I think Phil said he worked there and was talking about a school behind it.
 My Grandmother and family also used to live in this area, and by pure coincidence i now work in the area.
Would the school behind the factory be Adderley Primary School?
It's the old Victorian building on the corner of Adderley and Arden road!
If so, I have a picture of my great uncle and his class standing outside the school. My Great Grandparents owned either a sweet shop or paper shop on Adderley road, which I believe is not longer there.
I came across this site by looking for information or photos of George Arthur road baths. My grandmother was recently telling me my grandfather used to dance there.

howky Just wondering where about on Adderley road was the Olive branch pub? 
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
