Brixworth Road, below the junction with School Road. The photograph shows:
1.The end of what was until 2000 the Post Office.
2. Johnny Richardson's Family Grocer's store where Ron Bell was employed as a grocer's boy. The shop sold not only groceries, but also hardware and stationery. It was also the Post Office. Before the house became a grocer's shop it was lived in by Mr Charles Tirrell, a tailor. This shop was, until sometime in the 1920s, just a house, as shown on image 1918 (although the 'shop' corner is missing from this picture) from the Partridge set of postcards, supposedly dated 1926.
