Chorlton's corner shops, number 1, Oswald Road and Ransfield Road

Once the corner shop was a familiar and important feature of most of our towns and cities acting as much as a lifeline to the late shopper as a place to pick up the gossip of the street.

Many have gone converted into residential use or left empty waiting for better days.

But those that survive against the competition of the big stores and convenience outlets are well worth recording, so here over the next few days courtesy of Andy’s pictures are some of ours here in Chorlton.

The first is on the corner of Oswald Road and Ransfield Road.
