You are correst Herby. Next to the blacksmiths was a foundry. I think it was called Broadbents. Before the war it used to light up the night sky when they were pouring the molten steel to make the castings

Re shoe shops. Anyone remember the shoe shop down the bottom end of Stamford Street - Clark's? I remember having my feet x-rayed there and looking down a scope thing at my bones. Try that now with 'elf an' safety!
