Things to look for

  • 5 digit phone numbers on store veranda
  •  Almost no houses above Knocklofty Terrace
  • Alarm to call fire brigade on pole
  • Pre-decimal prices in shop windows
  • People’s clothing
  • Coke truck delivering bottles
  • Overhead wires for trolley buses
  • Concrete posts outside shop to protect veranda from trucks ‘cutting the corner’.
