(possibly some kind of furniture shop)Thanks for any info you may be able to provide. You any relation to Leon Perrin?I remember Bellindas. As to the shops, there was Watson Cairns Bike shop and Bass & Bligh the Binocular / Camera shop.http://www.bassandbligh.com/store/about/info_1.htmlOver the bridge there was a motorbike shop that had a Vincent Black Shadow in the window. Admiring that Ford Granada in your photo (how do you post a photo?)they were 'hot'. The bike in Danny corks window wasn't a black shadow it was a Comet 500 cc single or half a black shadow , spent a lot of My youth at that establishment buying stuff for My old Brit bikes.Loved Dannys way of pricing thing up, He would look at You over His glasses and say in that lovely burr of His "Right lets work it out"I think His Son Danny Jnr carried the business on mainly for trial bike stuff at the Idas Ind' estate in Stourton.Happy days.Moggy

There was (maybe still is) a shop opposite Belinda's on Lower Briggate called "Class". It used to sell menswear and it always struck me as an out of the way place for such a shop. I once bought a Sabre Saturday Shirt there (along with a whole load of inbuilt static electricity). Remember them?I think the camera shop was next door.JD

Main thing I remember from it was the low hanging lampshades over the tables which I inadvertently collided with and lost me beer!Shops opposite were Class (clothes) and Bass & Bligh (cameras) I remember it as Pentagons too, then Tramps and then Belindas (maybe in a different order but that's the names I remember) Excellent disco club in the mid 70's as Tramps. The king of disco Tom Moulton played there once, it must have been 75ish as I remember hassling him to play the extended version of Harold Melvin and The Bluenotes - "Don't Leave Me This Way".
Sit thissen dahn an' tell us abaht it.

SPLAY=FULL I remember those shops being there, & browsing in the window of the 'Contact' at all the guitars.Here's a similar view on my 'www', just stood a bit further downhttp://news.webshots.com/photo/1138087117047309372vglsdlThe accompanying text may be wrong, but it was what I understood to be correct at the time of writing (2004, looking at the dates)
