Townend : (view 2) : Townend Stores & Wheatsheaf
This 1960 view looking across Townend from the Peel Street/York Street corner provides a good impression of the Townend General Stores which once incorporated an adjacent cafe, and had a busy postal business. The painted facade could not be missed! And just to make sure and all-seeing eye looked down on passers by. All lost due to road widening and a new roundabout. In the background, at the bottom of Racecommon Road, the Wheatsheaf Hotel is in view, demolished in 1990, a former mid-Victorian establishment.
