At some point in time possibly in the 1950's, it has been suggested that this premises was called the "Silver Horseshoe" this image indicates that there was a printers here in the 1930's called "Hodgson Printing Works".

Comments about this page

I lived just over the road from 1952 until 1967. It was a shop known as "The Café" for all that time as I remember. The couple that ran it opened every day of the year from early until late in a time when that was almost unheard of. I seem to remember the man had a foreign accent and was well liked.
