Notes from Mr D Nicholls, 92 Pangbourne St Wembley: 'The shop known as Brown's confectionery was well known to young children and adults in 1930's. One would exchange comics and paper back books. Mrs brown had a large tabby cat which sat on the counter all day. From memory that cat was not friendly and did not enjoy being stroked!'.
