This photo was supplied by Eastwood Historical Society and shows W Allcock home furnishings store.

The vice chairman of the history society John Stanger has tried to establish whereabouts in the town the shop once stood, but has not had any joy.

“There’s two bay windows above the shop, so I was looking out for them as I walked through Eastwood,” he said.

“Although the shops change the buildings above often stay the same.

“I even asked a 90-year-old man who had lived in Eastwood all his life if he recognised it, but he didn’t.”
