The Front III

This building, Number 9, has changed very little in 50 years. The wooden sash windows are still in place upstairs and the shop front plate glass framing remains unchanged. In the 1950s, Number 9 on the left was a Muscutt and Tompkins stationery shop, managed by Mrs Tompkins. On the right, Numbered 9a, the firm of Johnsons, the Estate Agents occupied the premises. They also had offices in Bletchley and, I believe, Stony Stratford. 
At Number 10 - Davis Brothers - Removal Contractors. I probably paid no attention to this shop when I was young. The upper bay window was there in the 1950s but the shop frontage has changed.
