In that pre-mobile age when arrangements to meet someone had to be done in advance and then stuck to
Harry Kemp’s chemist shop was the perfect spot.
Not only was it on the corner of two busy roads with plenty of bus stops but there was a large clock above the shop.
It continued as a chemist well into the century and is now the HSBC.
All of which makes this picture quite a find. It is one I haven’t seen before and I have to thank Mark Flynn for permission to reproduce it.
Mark as a vast collection of picture postcards .
