Hi oldMohawk, Thank you so much for the link, will enjoy this thread I am sure. Great photo. Funnily enough I know the Beeches pub and the surrounding area. Obviously a bit different in modern day, in more ways than one. Regards Sue

The stamp dealer on Needless Alley was The Norfolk Stamp Co

I remember this shop in the 70s & 80s as West End Stamps run by Simon - who still sells at shows in Dorridge and the Irish Centre
My late father, Stewart Hughes, initially owned the West End Stamp Co after taking it over from the Norfolk Stamp Co, and sold the business to Simon I believe in the early 1980's. He is visible in the attached 1974 photo.
