Memories of Lorimers, a stationery shop with toys, thought to have been at 17 High Street.
In this audio you can hear Judith.
The audio is 37 seconds long.
And how it started as Noteus and then became Lorimers, but it’s basically the same thing which was the stationers, but it was… had a front shop and a back shop and the front shop had stationery had got cards, picture frames, ink pens, paper, that sort of thing. And the back shop had toys. And they, for a small shop, they had an amazing selection of toys. I remember getting a pair of stilts there for my cousin’s son. I’d been up to Hamleys and couldn’t get them there, came down and found them in in Lorimers. So, I think that’s the only toy shop that I remember.
