I can remember this as a Post Office in the 1940's but the rest of the buildings were all shops. Can't remember the names of the people who lived at the P.O. but they were a brother & sister (unmarried). The man was okay but his sister seemed rather scary - she was always dressed in black & always had a cigarette hanging from her lips - and if you left the shop door open then you were really in trouble.

Miss Smith was a bit scary, as children we used to wait for her cigarette ash to fall on her ample bosom, giggle and run!
