Am I right in thinking that the “new shop” in the Woolworth building, referred to as 4 Market Street, is actually in what became Market Way? The image Neil posted is obviously their other shop in the City Arcade building. Update: The Telephone Directories confirm this. Listings for Stone’s at 4 Market Street and Trueform at 2 Market Street South in the early 1960s change by 1968 to Market Way. So, the image is of the City Arcade building. Thumbs up

The name of the street seems to have changed several times, MR, at first Market Street South but later as we knew it as Market Way. In the newspaper in the later 1950's they stop saying also in City Arcade, so I think the reason for the sale in the 1955 picture would be the final throws of the shop there, so I agree MR it must be the City Arcade shop.

Helen starts to cry in confusion.... The City Arcade had squared corners. The Stones on the corner of Market Street had a shaved corner like the photo. If it is the City Arcade, the buildings would be south Fleet Street? Can we match them? I have matched them to Fleet Street. So it is the City Arcade. Neil was right to question the location. BFA

Better shots of Hyde's Stores, Providence Street, following up on my earlier post! JohnnieWalker, not "LOG10" but "LOG30", no doubt also of interest to mathematicians! Cheers
