As a child 1940,s 50, Wards stores was the classy store in the area. I loved the overhead money collection system where the shop assistant would put the cash in a small container, screw it to the overhead delivery system and then fire it by a ctapult to the main cash desk in the middle of the store, all great fun when you are a kid.

@Laurence .. yes Ward's was quite classy and the Rudd's at High Road corner West Green Road also had the same system of cash collecting.. I used to spend what seemed to be hours watching that system..

Burgesses at Bruce Grove used the suction/vacuum system of cash collecting (not sure what is called)..

Sorry - here it is back.

 

But I noticed a similar style further up the High Road

Thanks for adding it again John D . I imagine both buildings were extremely modern for their time.. The newer shot is taken near to Bruce Grove..

I do wonder why showroom type windows were deemed necessary on the second floor though..
