“My mother worked in the Broadway cafe in the forties. It was the last shop in the parade . Vincent’s was on the Clarence Road corner with a hair salon Mr Weller sweet shop, the ARP centre, Mr Butler’s outfitters and Mr Payne’s greengrocer next to the cafe. With Mr Akerman’s grocery shop opposite Vincent’s we had everything we needed close at hand. Oh not forgetting Ruffles bakery where you could get bread straight from the oven.”– Sylvia Upton
