On the subject of ‘missing’ shops, a few spring to mind!
Was it Boosey the stationer in Abbeygate Street? And Harpers Music shop further along. I worked for Hubbards (which took over Harpers shop) My dad worked for RAP/Gibbards/Sidney Atkinson/Save and View/Coxheads/Loyds from about 1963! There was also a wool shop, a butcher, and a tobacconist there too!
