I remember Joan Barry’s shop. I bought my wedding veil with attached Juliet Cap headdress from there in 1974. It cost £7. I used to love looking through their shop windows, particularly at the beautiful wedding dresses. If I remember correctly it had a separate square glass display unit in the centre of the doorway entrance and it was possible to walk all the way around it window shopping, even at night when the shop was closed. Am I right in thinking that it was called Anne Lennard either before or after Joan Barry.

I bought my wedding dress there in 1967.  It cost a whole weeks wage - £14 - I've still got in in the loft!!
