    PS.
    I've got a bit of an ego.
    I think, but then I'm not so sure!
    I seem to remember a small general grocery shop being either right on the corner of Hawke Street and Brownlow Hill or a very near property actually in Brownlow Hill. It was a basement shop I think and you went down steps to it.

    On Brownlow Hill, near the Reeces Factory were shops.
    I remember a sweet shop and opposite was a chippy, catering for the needs of the school kids in the 70's.

    Was there a Jewish Bakery on Brownlow Hill, I remember a relative sending out for bagels and not knowing what they were.
