The two shops I remember on Great Lister Street were the (meatball) and peas shop (if I put the right word it gets censored by the word censor). It was one of my weekly chores to fetch a jug full every Friday night for tea. Considering I wouldn't eat them if you paid me to I thought it pretty unfair that it was me that had to fetch them.


Though it usually gave me the chance to nick into the second hand bookshop (which was the other shop I remember) that was nearby and buy some second hand comics or exchange some of the ones I had for a few coppers extra.

The one I used to go to was right up the other end up by Henry Street, sorry I have no idea of the name now, but it would have been around the late 50's early 60's.
