    I don’t remember Darlo having a BHS or M&S. Are both stores single storey or did BHS have an upstairs?

    Interesting article. Woolies moved to the new site in September 1940. There is an avert in the Northern Echo clearly referring to the opening of a new shop. I have also recently seen a photograph of the of Marks and Spencer on Northgate dated 1937 in which the original Woolies can be seen.

    Fantastic article as always!
    How did you come by a 1957 stores list? I bet it’s a fascinating read!
