Independent carpet retailer
Dated December 1974, Bernard Povey Carpets next door to the Coop Decorating Department. St George's Church is just out of sight to the right. Above the carpet shop is Michael Gerrard Hairdressers which at the time was one of 'the' places for ladies to have their hair styled. An advert for Gerrard's is under the Coop sign. John Gent's Firearms and fishing tackle is now where Povey's was. Also of note is the Morris Traveller car and above it one of the Christmas trees which were festooned across York Road for many years at this time of year.
