Original H L Brown shop (destroyed in Blitz)

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a picture of the original H L Brown jewellers which was destroyed in the Blitz. I've not been able to find one anywhere, on line or on Picture Sheffield, but I know one exists as I have seen it in a book by Neil Anderson about the Blitz. The book says it was on High Street with Cockayne's next door (but I was given to understand Cockaynes was where Argos now is on Angel Street). It doesn't explicitly state where he got the picture from.

Would anyone be able to help me source one please? Many thanks.

The reference to Cockayne's is correct because H L Brown were actually on Market Place, here's a couple of  early ones and another after the blitz, there's bound to be better ones around --------------
