I remember going into Lyon,s shop to buy distemper,(the modern version of emulsion,) and being served by Miss Lyon,who wore a khaki overall and a mans trilby,and she weighed it out in brown greaseproof paper,the place smelled of linseed oil & putty.
I can remember going to the Herb Shop in the 40's to get my Dad sasparella. I used to live at Angelsea Rd. and later at Evered Ave.

My wife's great uncle Tom Atherton ran the herb shop in the 50's.
what a sad sight with so many happy memories of the herbal drinks like sarsaparilla, dandelion & burdock etc. Jack Hill (1940-1944)
It's an age thing. Looking at this photo reminds me of looking at Victorian/Edwardian photos when I was a kid, when I thought "that looks ancient".
Hot dandelion and burdock and american cream soda were also on the menu. There wasn't a loo. I can recall having to pee in the park before getting the 60/81 down Queens Drive.
"yes" the sas bar! I went to Arnot street secondary modern,and after school we went to queens drive bath's,the next port of call was the sas bar for a pint of the best sasparella ever."great day's"
