    Default Wilkins jewellers in Parker street 1970's ?

    Hello to all,

    I am looking for any photographs of a shop called Wilkins jewellers, which was situated in Parker street during the late 60's, early 70's.

    My mum used to work there, but no one seems to have any pictures of it.

    We think that Ernest Jones jewellers are now in the same shop where Wilkins once was.

    If anyone can shed any light on this I would be most grateful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dave

    Thanks Steve. I have loads of books showing that Street and around that way and as i've only put a scattering of previously published pics up on the site there's a good chance I might have one in a book that's not on the site so i'll have a look tonight.
