Default Re: Lisle St

The shop mentioned in post 1, Will Day, no 19,Lisle St, was almost certainly opened in the earliest days of broadcasting. It is likely the place where my grandfather bought parts for his home made wireless. He unfortunately died whilst listening on headphones one evening in 1926,my father was only ten at the time. Lisle St was only a cheap bus ride from where I lived so I made many trips there in the 60's. Maybe the best part was a treat in Forte's in the Strand on the way home. Les.
