Geoff has found some old family photo's, do have any you want to share?
If so drop me a line...
I have just come across your site and was interested because my Grandmother used to be the Manageress in the Southport branch. She was called Elsie Lawton, and I recollect the staff always having to refer to her as Madam, and what a Madam she was.
Somewhere I have two photographs. One of the inside and another of the staff outside, with my Grandmother, when she was leaving. A date I am not aware of.
The staff must have presented her with a small round silver case which we still have.
