My wife Sheila worked in the shoe dept at Henrys in union st 1964.I seem to remember Henrys as a single storey building at the bottom of Lower Bull St in the 50s.
Here's Lewis's roof garden, Maria. Not many of the shrubs though!I have no clear memories, but I associate Henry's with crockery. Wish I could remember Lewis's roof garden!
Oasis....! I bought several nice frocks from there, also a ring made of green glass. It was dark and , er, mysterious. Happy days!
It does look dangerous too, Maria. Just imagine being a motorist and having a swimsuited glamour girl plastered over your windscreen due to having taken a wrong turn up there!It could be....I've got this (false?) memory of a tiny bridge.
It look terrifically dangerous!
Yes i remember Oasis it always smelt of burning insents :roll: I loved the clothes i used to like the indian stores cheesecloth shirts and blouses and embroidered tops, velvet trousers, Little coffee shops, record stores, people used to leave them unatended and very often you would have to wait ages for them to return imagine leaving anywhere now there would be nothing left when you came back :cry: Bangles and necklaces very much an Indian theme, lots of faded denim, yes it was definitely the place to be seen on a Saturday. It is such a pity that there are no photographs of such places to bring back happy memories, i looked for ages the other day for one of the Plaza in Handswoth as it was in the 60s but to no avail. :cry:
