Hi Josie. Had someone chalked something on the windowsill? Maybe " My name is ..... "? Viv.
There is a specific thread here:
However other mentions, in other threads, suggest a search would realize more information for you.
Family still there late 1950s, I can recall my Mother talking about Mr Christopher. Maybe they sold put when it moved to Perry Barr.Is it possible to establish when Wendys relatives gave up the business? As Mike traced the Nortons back to 1855 in Key Hill and Wendy guessed her relative may of been there around 1915, I would have thought there was a good chance the business had changed hands by the time that you can all remember shopping there and when it moved to perry barr.
Most businesses were/are sold with the goodwill of the business and so the name may have stayed the same even though it wasn't a Norton running it.
