Blundells were a firm that sold all sorts on the drip I think there was another warehouse by or in Blake Lane and one on Bristol Street , it was pay weekly or Provident cheques , I think most people had to live that way in those days SB

crikey how well i remember our mom using blundells when we were kids..case of having to with 6 of us especially at christmas time...pretty sure i recall going with our mom to a blundells place on the soho road.
It was just called the Green Lane SB though I read somewhere it was called the New Green Lane after a refurb in the 30s but reverted back later . Blundells must have been city wide then Lyn I can remember three of their warehouses but there were probably a lot more , I think most folk used them or something similar back then , not much cash about
