About this memory

on one wall, the hoses/shower heads could be moved between basins in front of the 3 Chairs.

There were 6 Chairs in total, 3 each side.

Products for Sale were, Combs, Hair Creams and Tonics, they were spread all round the Shop and it was my job to dust and clean them when I came an Apprentice in 1961, it was Robin’s job in 1963 when he became an Apprentice.

1952 – Durex Gossamer is the only product not on display, they were kept in a Drawer and produced after the question at the Till, “anything for the weekend Sir” ?

The curtain we think was just a cover the wall mirror to make a better photo.
