Similar view. And how I remember it from the 60s. Seems within a short space of time all the gents outfitters with crusty old servers were replaced by boutiques and dolly birds. I remember this part of Chatham would be thriving on a Saturday with teens spending on clothes and records. Pirate radio broadcasting from every shop front. Happy carefree days :)

I worked in a shop `George Carters ` next to Woolworth. in Chatham High Street.
Their claim to fame is that ` their shop in Peckham London, always got the result of the `Derby`
before anybody else `. ( jockey with headphones ) ?
