Under the attic windows

Remember those attic windows I showed you last Tuesday?

Well here are the businesses housed in the premises.

One is Ladbrokes a national chain of turf accountants or "bookies" as they are known colloquially.

The other is the Hyde office of a local Estate Agent. This stretch of Market Street has at least half a dozen different estate agencies trading. Some are firms with lots of branches nationally, others with a presence mainly in the North-West and few smaller firms specialising more locally.

When I was a little kid, we'd recently moved house and had a new lawn laid, when not long after, I saw a "bookie" with turf accountant written on the sign. For years I went round thinking their job was to work out how many lawn turfs you needed! :)
