Anyone remember this? Did you join the queue?

Recommended Posts

Orchard Lane - no I didn't join the queue but I do recall going without my school dinner all week so I could buy my mum a pair of clip on earrings from the shop when it was Bortners jewellers. I had forgotten what it was called so thank you for reminding me.

I don’t think it’s a queue,as such?..... looks like a closing down sale at Bortners and people have just stopped to look in the window?

The cigarette signs belong to the cafe,next door.

Those shops are gone now, in the Orchard Square re-developement. The Museum pub is now the end of the row.
