News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Can anyone tell me the name of the shop (clothes shop) between Bernards Buildings and George Street that used to sell Ben Sherman and Brutus shirts, Crombies, Tonics, clip-on braces, etc? I remember and it would be '70-71.  They used to display the shirts up the wall in the window. A friend of mine asked me the other day if I knew the name. I said I would try and help.

I was allowed to take some photos inside for my website a couple of months ago - with the same shops in most towns, is there really much difference to Maidstone, Bluewater etc.?
