Does anyone remember a shoe-repairer in the High Street in the 50s/60s called Hannigans(Spelling?) I think it was roughly opposite where Dee's is now. It seemed to be a long series of wooden sheds joined together. You had to step down from pavement level to go in. There was a lovely smell of leather inside, and you could see all the belts and wheels that drove the leather-working tools. But, what I remember most was a model of a dog made from woven strips of Woodbine packets that stood on the counter.
