Photograph of Sharp’s corner shop that once stood on the junction of Nethertown Broad Street and Moodie Street close to where the ‘Lyne Tavern’ was, which is now ‘Tapas Ducal’.
At least three brands of cigarettes can be seen advertised for sale, ‘Capstan”, Envoy’ and ‘Woodbine’. Like many corner shops from that era, it is long since demolished.

    Yes Mr Sharp had only one arm amazing at the time to see how he used his stump to open bags etc. I worked with his son Frank across the road at Whiteheads garage who were Vauxhall dealers. Sadly Frank died after an accident in the Garage which happened after I had left. Memories Indeed.

    I stayes in Priory Lane and visited this shop many ties both as a teenager and a child. I remember Frank & his wife very well. I was fascinated how he held the sweetie jar under his stump and twisted paper into a cone shape then tipped the sweets from the jar into this – then twisted the top of the paper cone before handing it over. Lovely memories.
