Cresser's shop now has a painted wooden frontage

Sadly, after being in business for over a hundred years, the shop closed not long after I took this photo.

Cresser's Shop was on the Ground Floor.  The upper floors were used as a workshop and for storage.

This view on one of the upper floors looks towards one of the windows overlooking Victoria Street.
