In 2001 Mr A George who lived at 27 Russell Street before WWII recalled how he would be sent on errands to thr Co-op. He was fascinated by the little boxes carrying money which used to travel on wires above the customers’ heads. He used to nibble bits off the fresh cottage loaf he bought for his mother and she would ask if a mouse had been at it.  (J Finch ‘Bull’s Milk Is Best’)

1939 (Flat over Co-op)
