Until they were demolished in the very early 70's my grandma and grandad lived at 19 Albert Street. During the 50's/early 60's the sweet shop on the corner, shown here now with a white door was called Redmans. The shop it backed onto was Coopers and Lodges to the far left was an ironmongers. Out of frame to the right and facing Redmans was a bookies.
