Transcript for John Quirk

Greenberg's was here on this wasteland, it was Merchant Navy clothing and then when the shipping declined they started selling other outfits like nurses outfits and industrial clothing. And sadly now they've gone now into Speke. It was very old though in there, it was like going back in time, you know with the old counters and all the shelves and the little square shelves everywhere. And on the roof they had two big model owls, and that was to keep the pigeons away, because the pigeons used to come from the rice mill there. But the owls did no good, the pigeons still came down. Yeah it's all changed now, so, I don't recognise anywhere round here now.
