E W Bridge - Hairdresser, Stationer, Library and Fancy
In spite of Kelly's description, the late J B Harris remembers it in the 1920s principally as a toy shop. "My favourite shop when I was young was E W Bridge, Bridge's in the High Street. It was a toy shop and sold a wide range from fully soft toys to rattles, cheap, tin Hornby trains and Meccano and quality model railways by Basset-Lowke. One counter was devoted to knitting wool." From 'Memories of Southwold 1920 - 1939' by J B Harris, quoted here by kind permission of his widow, Mary Harris.
