Hi royston2000,

I have the Kelly's Directories for 1937 & 1955, but none for the 1940's.

F.W. Drago & Son, (wireless dealer in 1937, radio engineers in 1955), was on the corner of Luton Road & Albany Road.

There is an area behind the shop that  has a  workshop (it's a motorcycle dealers now) & this could possibly have been an open yard. Nothing is listed in either years Kelly's for its use.

Are you local & able to see the shop yourself? - take the journey

I have been doing my family history and trying to back everything up with pictures. My Grandfather, John Fisher, had a coal merchants, just off Luton Road, Chatham, at the rear of a shop that sold and charged the old wet batteries and I believe also installed the old Radio Relay system. I believe the name of this shop was Drago`s. The date would be mid 1940s.

Any information on these shops and pictures would be greatly appreciated.
